PDF::FDF::Simple helps creating and extracting the content of FDF files. It
is meant to be a simple replacement for the Adobe FdfToolkit. Therefore some
of its behavior, especially handling of diverse whitespace/newline artefacts,
is orientated on FdfToolkit's handling.
After the extraction process the content is available within a hash
For creating FDF files it currently only supports setting text
values. Anyway, this should be enough to create FDF files for text
fields, text areas, checkboxes and radio buttons.
PDF::FDF::Simple uses Parse::RecDescent and understands both the
"Kids" notation and the "dotted" notation for field names. Saving will
always use the "dotted" notation.
