Topic: PDF Optimization

I am trying to find a way to programmatically optimize an existing PDF file. In my code, I talk to a mainframe, which spits out a text file. I then use
PDFlib to turn the text file into a PDF file. But, PDFlib doesn't create an optimized file.

Does anyone know of a way to change an existing PDF file to an optimized PDF file? This is very important because these reports (sometimes hundreds of pages) are displayed on the Internet and users hate to wait
for the whole thing to download before they can view the first page.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
