Functions

poppler_date_parse ()

gboolean
poppler_date_parse (const gchar *date,
                    time_t *timet);

Parses a PDF format date string and converts it to a time_t. Returns FALSE if the parsing fails or the input string is not a valid PDF format date string

Parameters

date

string to parse

 

timet

an uninitialized time_t

 

Returns

TRUE, if timet was set

poppler_named_dest_from_bytestring ()

char *
poppler_named_dest_from_bytestring (const guint8 *data,
                                    gsize length);

Converts a bytestring into a zero-terminated string suitable to pass to poppler_document_find_dest().

Note that the returned string has no defined encoding and is not suitable for display to the user.

The returned data must be freed using g_free().

Parameters

data

the bytestring data.

[array length=length]

length

the bytestring length

 

Returns

the named dest.

poppler_named_dest_to_bytestring ()

guint8 *
poppler_named_dest_to_bytestring (const char *named_dest,
                                  gsize *length);

Converts a named dest string (e.g. from PopplerDest.named_dest) into a bytestring, inverting the transformation of poppler_named_dest_from_bytestring().

Note that the returned data is not zero terminated and may also contains embedded NUL bytes.

If name is not a valid named dest string, returns NULL.

The returned data must be freed using g_free().

Parameters

name

the named dest string

 

length

a location to store the length of the returned bytestring.

[out]

Returns

a new bytestring, or NULL.
