How to open PDF?

I have actually been wishing to see the insides of a PDF for a while, like, the raw source code of it so I can take a look at it.

Programs which reveal the structure of a PDF are not revealing you its “source”, they are translating (part of) the data (in a lower level than a pdf audience does of course); rather handy tool because dealing with a PDF at the level of the bytes is very error-prone. Yet, the PDF “source code” is the really exact same file you can check out with the hex editor (simply given that you anticipate non ASCII bytes).

About me, I have actually poked and glanced PDF files (with the spec at hand) simply for fun in the most primitive method. It is not me not understanding “much about PDF internals”: it is you stopping working at understanding human language sentences and OP needs.

Looking at the raw code of PDFs will not serve you much unless you likewise have a concept about its internal structure. You need to get yourself a copy of the official PDF reference (download PDF), and you ought to have read some introductionary short article such as this [gone] or this to begin with.

After such a preparation, you’ll not discover much beneficial when looking at the raw code. Due to the fact that PDFs generally will include parts which are “filtered” (that means: compressed pdf in c#).
Ways to take a look at the genuine PDF source behind the ‘raw’ binary parts.

qpdf is a very useful commandline tool (available for Linux, Mac OSX and as source code, under the open source Artistic License), which can unload most filtered content and re-organize the internal structure in a manner that offers you a lot more insight into it.

PDF cannot exactly be explained as ‘a subset of PostScript’. It’s originated from PostScript yes: its graphic design is the mostly the very same, its language’s semantics are a subset of PostScript, and a few of the operators it uses have similar matches in PostScript (utilizing shorter names). However the graphic abilities have been mainly enhanced and extended as compared with PostScript (font styles, color areas, openness, …).
