in reply to Review request for PDF::API2 Tutorial

I would take your text_block() subroutine, and either submit it to the PDF::API2 author for inclusion in that module, or submit it to CPAN as "PDF::API2::TextBlock" or some such.

That would give it wider exposure, put it under real version control, provide a central place for storing/updating it, etc. (all the advantages of CPAN.)

It would also simplify your tutorial, since you can concentrate on the use of the subroutine rather than its internals.

    The tutorial won't actually cover the text_block subroutine, just like it doesn't cover the bit between lines 10 and 30 :)

    I might put it on CPAN though, not a bad idea.

    If this is a root node: Before responding, please ensure your clue bit is set.
    If this is a reply: This is a discussion group, not a helpdesk ... If the discussion happens to answer a question you've asked, that's incidental.
