Fedora Update Notification
2020-07-11 01:03:04.330769

Name : podofo
Product : Fedora 31
Version : 0.9.6
Release : 11.fc31
URL : http://podofo.sourceforge.net
Summary : Tools and libraries to work with the PDF file format
Description :
PoDoFo is a library to work with the PDF file format. The name comes from
the first letter of PDF (Portable Document Format). A few tools to work
with PDF files are already included in the PoDoFo package.

The PoDoFo library is a free, portable C++ library which includes classes
to parse PDF files and modify their contents into memory. The changes can be
written back to disk easily. The parser can also be used to extract
information from a PDF file (for example the parser could be used in a PDF
viewer). Besides parsing PoDoFo includes also very simple classes to create
your own PDF files. All classes are documented so it is easy to start writing
your own application using PoDoFo.
