Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4367) Error expected floating point number actual='18-5'
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2018 04:31:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4367?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16676120#comment-16676120

Tilman Hausherr commented on PDFBOX-4367:

I'm now thinking that I should make it the default to process each page individually (for
an unrelated idea I may be working on soon), instead make it an option to not-abort-on-errors,
i.e. catch the exception. But again, I need a good name for it. Now suddenly "force" doesn't
sound that bad.

>             Project: PDFBox
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Text extraction
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.12
>         Environment: Mac OS X Sierra
>            Reporter: Peter Johnson
>            Priority: Minor
> Able to repeat with command line.  Unfortunately, the only files that repeat this are
from a customer, and contain sensitive information.  The file opens without error in Acrobat
Reader and Mac Preview.  The desired result is that any corrupt portions of the PDF are skipped,
so that we can use what text is extractable.
> Unfortunately, I still get an error when using the -force option.
> We get the following stack trace:
