Did you see Bart's negative review on CPAN?

It includes alternative sample code achieved by RTFMing.

Cheers Rolf

    In my experience, htmldoc frequently dies ungracefully on HTML syntax it cannot digest, even when it is perfectly valid. So the RTFM method needs extra error handling. I do not know HTML::HTMLdoc, but the other comments indicate to me, that the module gives no good feedback on any problem.

    Now to the actual question: a field that I can edit from the PDF, like an input type="text" in a form, is that possible? No. htmldoc does only*) simple HTML 3 and simple PDF, cf www.htmldoc.org

    *)
    I still find it useful when you have HTML in the first place and can clean up a bit before passing it on to htmldoc
