This class provides methods for managing file specifications of a PDF file.
Note that for a given PDF file not all file specifications may be found, e.g. when a file specification is only a string. Therefore this module can only handle those file specifications that are indirect file specification dictionaries with the /Type key set.
Public Class Methods
Public Instance Methods
Adds the file or IO to the PDF document and returns the corresponding file specification object.
The name that should be used for the file path. This name is also used for registering the file in the EmbeddedFiles name tree.
When a filename is given, the basename of the file is used by default for
nameif it is not specified.
A description of the file.
When an IO object is given, it is always embedded and this option is ignored.
When a filename is given and this option is
true, then the file is embedded. Otherwise only a reference to it is stored.
Iterates over indirect file specification dictionaries of the PDF.
By default, only the file specifications in their standard locations, namely in the EmbeddedFiles name tree and in the page annotations, are returned. If the
search option is
true, then all indirect objects are searched for file specification dictionaries which can be much slower.
