Yep, I looked into it as well. Seems the fpvectorial package does not include the pdfreader package; trying to add it gave compile errors.

Perhaps the pdf stuff is out of date and needs fixes to match the current fpvectorial structure (split up between pages and documents)

I got it from SVN and tried the code in the wiki

Code: [Select]
    Vec.ReadFromFile(FileNameEdit1.Text, vfPDF);
    Vec.WriteToStrings(Memo1.Lines, vfGCodeAvisoCNCPrototipoV5);

It fails opening any pdf file I got here, it raises exception "Unsupported vector graphics format" , so it probably doesn't fully support PDF.

fpVectorial is split into two categories.  Vectorial Images and Text Document document.  (Originally written as a Vectorial Image library, the Text Document support was added later).  The current PDF support is for the Vectorial Image side of things, so essentially it's designed to extract vectorial images from PDF only (not used it myself, but Autocad generates single page vectorial image PDF files, I suspect it's these that the PDF reader was written to support).

Apologies for the confusion - I'll see if I can't make the wiki clearer...
