all;

in the current pdf file reference, in the discussion of the file trailer of a pdf document, this appears:

"... The last line of the file contains only the end of file marker, %%EOF".

There is then an implementation note that says that the Acrobat viewers only require that this mark appear in the last 1024 bytes of the file. why is this? in particular, can anything go after the marker -- another object, for example?

and, should anyone be so willing, could someone give me the slightest hint why this loose enforcement of where the end of file marker appears would be desirable?

thanks;
seye
