in reply to Count pages of PDF file

That's about the only easy thing you can do with a PDF (aside from unlink()). Here's how to get a page count.

use PDF::API2; my $pdf = PDF::API2->open( 'yourfile.pdf' ); my $count = $pdf->pages(); print "O frabjous day! The PDF has $count pages. Callooh! Callay!\n";


Update: Well, in my excitement, having just done some painful work with PDF's a few days ago, I jumped on an answer, not realizing that you (the OP) followed up to your own node with a mostly similar solution. ...except that yours keeps a running total of total pages across multiple PDF files. I didn't see that need in the original question. But now I'm wondering what just happened here: If you already know the answer why did you post the question to Seekers of Perl Wisdom. Is there something more you would like us to add to your solution? :)
