Hello,

 

We need for an adobe illustrator document to create some program to :

 1- calculate and find all colors used withing the document

 2- Calculate the occupation of each color

 

Can you please suggest ways to do like this ? which language, API, scripting language to do faster and efficient.

 

Thank you

I think you can get both with the SDK, you'll need C++ to make your own plugins. This is the fastest and most efficient, but it's the hardest to implement. If have C++ knowledge, then it shouldn't be a problem for you.

 

you can get used colors with Scripting, for this all you need is Javascript.

 

occupation, do you mean ink coverage? 

check this Astute plugin to see if it works for you
