in reply to PDF::API2 processing time

I had the same problem a while ago.

PDF::API2 is a very good module for everything PDF, but it is slow.
I had to create thousands of PDFs in one case and one PDF with thousands of pages in the other. Not feasible with PDF::API2.

I went for Inline::C and HARU. It is fast but debugging is a PITA.

Next version will be C++.
