Parameter Parsing

Parameters to control almost any pdfMachine option can be dynamically "parsed" out of a PDF file. e.g. parameters such as "email to" and "email subject" can be dynamically "parsed" out of a PDF file for automatic email sending. You can use the "splitPDF" parameter to split a large report into a number of PDFs. This makes it great for integration with legacy applications that operate in "batch" mode. This product is ideal to perform email merges from a legacy application.
