PDF::API2::Basic::PDF:UsereContributed Perl DocuPDF::API2::Basic::PDF::Name(3)

       PDF::API2::Basic::PDF::Name - Inherits from
       PDF::API2::Basic::PDF::String and stores	PDF names (things beginning
       with /)

       Creates a new string object (not	a full object yet) from	a given
       string.	The string is parsed according to input	criteria with escaping
       working,	particular to Names.

   $n->convert ($string, $pdf)
       Converts	a name into a string by	removing the / and converting any hex

   $s->as_pdf ($pdf)
       Returns a name formatted	as PDF.	 $pdf is optional but should be	the
       PDF File	object for which the name is intended if supplied.

   PDF::API2::Basic::PDF::Name->string_to_name ($string, $pdf)
       Suitably	encode the string $string for output in	the File object	$pdf
       (the exact format may depend on the version of $pdf).

   PDF::API2::Basic::PDF::Name->name_to_string ($string, $pdf)
       Suitably	decode the string $string as read from the File	object $pdf
       (the exact decoding may depend on the version of	$pdf).	Principally,
       undo the	hex encoding for PDF versions >	1.1.
