in thread State of the art of PDFs in Perl

Funnily enough, about a year ago I replaced some code (not in perl) that shelled out to pdftk, with code that shelled out to a pair of perl scripts (one PDF::API2 and one Text::PDF::File). Partly because the perl solution was faster. And partly to cut down on the amount of Java crap I had to deal with on the server :)

[Discipulus]: i'm not escaping correctly?
[moritz]: Discipulus] iirc bash doesn't let you escape ' with \
[moritz]: not inside a single-qouted string at least
[moritz]: echo 'a'\''
