pdfrw can read and write PDF files, and can also be used to read in PDFs which
can then be used inside reportlab.
pdfrw tries to be agnostic about the contents of PDF files, and support them
as containers, but to do useful work, something a little higher-level is
required. It supports the following:
* PDF pages. pdfrw knows enough to find the pages in PDF files you read in,
and to write a set of pages back out to a new PDF file.
* Form XObjects. pdfrw can take any page or rectangle on a page, and convert
it to a Form XObject, suitable for use inside another PDF file
* reportlab objects. pdfrw can recursively create a set of reportlab objects
from its internal object format. This allows, for example, Form XObjects to
be used inside reportlab.
This package installs the library for Python 2.
