PDF::API3::Compat::API2::Basic::PDF::Name - Inherits from PDF::API3::Compat::API2::Basic::PDF::String and stores PDF names (things beginning with /)
Creates a new string object (not a full object yet) from a given string. The string is parsed according to input criteria with escaping working, particular to Names.
Converts a name into a string by removing the / and converting any hex munging unless $pdf is supplied and its version is less than 1.2.
Returns a name formatted as PDF. $pdf is optional but should be the PDF File object for which the name is intended if supplied.
Suitably encode the string $str for output in the File object $pdf (the exact format may depend on the version of $pdf). Prinicipally, encode certain characters in hex if the version is greater than 1.1.
Suitably decode the string $str as read from the File object $pdf (the exact decoding may depend on the version of $pdf). Principally, undo the hex encoding for PDF versions > 1.1.
