( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I personally believe that there are tons of better, more reliable, and format-specific extractors of images for "container" files like pdf, or (those damned) pps, etc.: either free (for one of the two acceptations of the word) or not. But yesterday I was in a quick need of extracting the jpeg images contained in one such file, so I quickly checked JPEG @ Wikipedia for the headers's markers and I concocted up the latter, possibly complete of some minimal YAGNI (I know I shouldn't) for future development: it worked for me!

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; use open IO => ':raw'; use File::Basename; my $progname; BEGIN { ($progname) = fileparse $0, qr/\.pl/i; } local $/; my %cnt; while (<>) { while ( /(\xFF\xD8 .*? \xFF\xD9)/xsg ) { for my $name ($ARGV . ++$cnt{$ARGV} . '.jpeg') { open my $fh, '>', $name or die "Can't open `$name': $!\n"; warn "[$progname] Creating `$name'\n"; print $fh $1; } } } __END__
If you can't understand the incipit, then please check the IPB Campaign.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
