Validity of a PDF File

Post by elisegev » 2006-03-30T12:46:06-07:00

I generate a PDF file with the aid of iText (http://www.lowagie.com/iText/docs.html). When I convert this PDF file to JPG, I get the following warming messages:

**** Warning: File has an invalid xref entry: 2. Rebuilding xref table.

**** This file had errors that were repaired or ignored.
**** The file was produced by:
**** >>>> iText 1.3.6 (by lowagie.com) distributed with the Software Developer's Journal <<<<
**** Please notify the author of the software that produced this
**** file that it does not conform to Adobe's published PDF
**** specification.

I sent these warnings to the iText people and they said:

The PDF is perfectly fine and not damaged or broken in any way.

So who is right?

BTW, when I display the PDF file with Ghostscript 8.51, I get this warning:

**** Warning: File has an invalid xref entry: 2. Rebuilding xref table.

Any suggestions?

Post a URL to your image here so we can download it and try to determine if the file is corrupt or if its a bug.

I don't have a web site to post the file. I will look around for one and let you know.

I have sent you a URL. Can you read the content?

We could not read the URL you sent us. It would not load, instead it just timed out.

Your jacket2.pdf converted fine without complaint for us. We're using ImageMagick 6.2.6-8 and Ghostscript 8.15.1 (2005-09-22).
