Is there anyway for me to 'hack' the files with perl to look for values? As in, is it possible to search through the file and look for the binary value of the text string 'fax' and then extract the binary value of 9 numbers following it? Would this be a job better pulled off in c++ (I'm imagining it would, but perl is much faster in the coding aspect)
Re: [skeloner] Possible To Extract Information From an adobe pagemaker file?
[In reply to]
It's not really essential that i code a program to do this for me, but it would save me tons of time.
If i called up adobe, and begged them for the file specs, is it possible to extract the data once i know it's format? I've never dealt binary files like these in perl before, my only previous perl experiences have been strictly text files and databases and images. (normal web stuff)
