Topic: Confusing coordinate values
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 137826

Hi,

I wrote a program to track how the path construction works (rectangles, etc),

I observed the tokens as follows and printed (using PDFBox).

Pdpage.getContents().getStream().getStreamTokens().iterator();

......
......
I analyzed each and every token and observed the following sequence of operator pattern(only the operators are listed below) with necessary coordinate values

m, l, l, l, f*,Q,q,cm,rg

I opened the PDF using a different viewer (jpedal) which gives the universal coordinates,


The problem I have is the coordinate values which I get from the stream along with the operators
does not seems to be correct with the one I got from the other viewer program which gives the universal coordinates.


In order to achieve the universal coordinates what should I do.

Thanks,

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
