NAME

       Text::PDF::Name - Inherits from Text::PDF::String and stores PDF names (things beginning
       with /)

METHODS

       Text::PDF::Name->from_pdf($string)

       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.

       $n->convert ($str, $pdf)

       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.

       $s->as_pdf ($pdf)

       Returns a name formatted as PDF.  $pdf is optional but should be the PDF File object for
       which the name is intended if supplied.

       Text::PDF::Name->string_to_name ($str, $pdf)

       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.

       Text::PDF::Name->name_to_string ($str, $pdf)

       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.
