Topic: Handling corrupt xref/pointers

I have a number of files where the pointer to the xref table or the xref table
(ie the file offset to object or ref table itself) is wrong (ie larger than the file.
Acrobat can open these files. I want to provide the same functionality as Adobe
does but can't find it documented anywhere. I can just scan the whole file
for the references - is this what Adobe does? And what happens with multiple
generations of an object?
Any ideas, please.
