This release keeps Argus current with the latest developments in the PDF format.
It comes with a selection of pre-configured output schemes including HTML and RTF which may be extended, modified or completely re-written to produce any text-based output format required.
With its built-in rendering engine, image export and scaling facilities, the software can also handle any aspect of image generation or conversion you need.
Argus is packaged as a command-line driven Solaris (Sparc), Linux (x86), or Windows application. The stand-alone application does not require any Adobe software and can operate comfortably on a "headless" server machine using on-demand script calls or via its built-in spooler.
Argus allows you to re-configure every aspect of the PDF conversion down to the level of individual tags, line-breaks and analysis behaviour. This means that it is possible to generate text output in almost any format you require whether it be a proprietary tagging scheme of your own or a standard markup language.
The package includes an extensive set of pre-configured schemes including:
The following pages detail the purpose and effects of each of the bundled configurations.
Argus includes a SDK with support for C, C++ and Visual Basic. Using the SDK, the full power of Argus can be seamlessly incorporated into your own Visual Basic applications and "C/C++" programs.
In fact, any application requiring the ability to convert or render PDF documents can be rapidly developed using the simple API provided by the SDK.
Argus also offers a large set of meta-data macros enabling you to extract and embed PDF-specific information in your output.
The macros cover things such as page number, title, filename, font names etc. You can even extract proprietary embedded fields from the information dictionary if your current system requires it.

of random sequences of X’s replacing some characters. For images, the corruption is a watermark added to the image.
