Hi,

I've downloaded the SDK 7.0 for Linux and unzipped.  Am unclear on which binaries to install or if I need to do a make/compile first.  There appears to be two binaries in the unzipped folders.  makekey and makeppi.  Are these the binaries?  If so, how can I get a listing of the methods/functions in each?  Want to determine which binary contains the  methods/functions outlined in the SDK 7.0 object model.

Have code working on Windoze side but need to port over to linux.

Any help or guidance to resources would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Scott

Hi,

The Acrobat SDK only provides access to the headers and samples for creating a plug-in for Acrobat or Reader, the actual methods are provided by the application not the SDK.

The applications you are looking at are used to sign the Plug-in that is created so that it can be loaded by the Adobe Reader application.

If you are looking to build a stand alone (i.e. without Adobe Acrobat/Reader installed) then you would need to get a different library. Adobe has the PDF library for this ( although there are other third party libraries that can be used.)

Regards

Malcolm
