Hi,
Is it possible to decide with in first 256 bytes whether the file is PDF file or some other file.
and also i want to know
1) first line of the PDF file(text mode)always header section or not.
2) will the PDF comments appear before precede header section?
because in PDF Specification document in Compatibility and Implementation Notes chapter it is given that
Acrobat reader liberal to check the header section
with in first 1000 bytes. so i had a doubt that PDF
comments may precede the header section since PDF body
will not appear before header section.

so if anybody knows PDF file format can u please
help me.

Thanks,
Devan R
