Several posts have mentioned that the Adobe Acrobat Plug-in API is not thead-safe. Where can I find this info? As far as I can tell, the 5.0 sdk documentation does not mention thread safety.
My application acquires the contents of the page, reads the contents into my data structures, does some work on these data structures, then writes new information back into the page. The work is page-centric so I was thinking about spawning threads, to process pages in parallel.
multiple threads cannot modify to the same page at the same time.
Can multiple threads MODIFY the contents of DIFFERENT pages in the same doc in parallel?
Can multiple threads READ from the SAME page, in parallel?
Can multiple threads READ from DIFFERENT pages in parallel?
