Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4215) Get pages from a HTTP stream of a large pdf file

Tilman Hausherr commented on PDFBOX-4215:
-----------------------------------------

No that's not how it works. The pages can be at any place. All the elements don't have to
be in any particular order. And PDF isn't something like HTML / XML where everything is in
sequence.

> Hi Apache contributors,
> Suppose I have a very big pdf file and I want to split this file into file chunks (e.g.
one file per page). I cannot load the entire file into memory and I cannot use the hard
disk of the computer as described in the doc for large files... :D. But I still have the
stream of the file, line by line.(on)
> I read that it is not feasible to get the pages of the pdf in order (because of the
pdf specs), but is it feasible to load random pages if you read line by line and look for
page breaks in pdfbox?
> Hagd, A.
