in thread Open page error for PDF::API2

I have tried all the suggestions, made sure in the FTP it was sending binary, Compress::Zlib is installed, I doubt it that its the actual perl file being the problem for I have only changed a few text, however i have recently changed the pdf, I still have yet been able to get it to work if you need to see the pdf file i can send it to you if that help, and also put the .pl file in my scratchpad (Its a bit ugly, was a fast hack). I am still trying thing to see what i can come up with

    Right, I too don't think the problem is with your Perl script. I suppose it's something with the PDF, however. Either it's been garbled for some reason, or Adobe InDesign introduced some feature that PDF::API2 can't handle...   Well, feel free to send me the PDF file (exactly as you have it on the webserver - preferably compute an md5sum too, so I can verify we have the identical file...), and I'll take a look... (I'll /msg you my email).

[GotToBTru]: i am satisfied with the default settings turning the seemingly random formatting into something reliable
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, I started a quick(ly implemented but slowly running) implementation of a program that would guess the "best" configuration (that is, least amount of changes) from my code, but then found that it stops parsing the source as soon as it ..
[GotToBTru]: sadly, it can't do anything about this
[Corion]: ... encounters sub foo($bar,$baz) {, which is something I like nowadays
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, that stuff is hard to do away automatically ;)
[GotToBTru]: yeah, you mentioned it could not handle signatures
