PDFlib CMap package let's you to create Chinese, Japanese, or Korean (CJK) text output with PDFlib with one of the predefined CMaps, PDFlib 7 requires the corresponding CMap files for processing the incoming text and mapping CJK encodings to Unicode.
The CMap files are available in the packages below. After unpacking they should be installed as follows:
- On Windows the CMap files will be found automatically if you place them in the resource/cmap directory within the PDFlib installation directory.
- On other systems you can place the CMap files at any convenient directory, and must manually configure the CMap files by setting the searchpath at runtime, e.g: p.set_parameter("SearchPath", "/path/to/resource/cmap");
- As an alternative method for configuring access to the CJK CMap files you can set the PDFLIBRESOURCEFILE environment variable to point to a UPR configuration file which contains a suitable SearchPath definition.
See the PDFlib tutorial for more details on configuration options.
Note: PDFlib 6 does not require CMaps for CJK output due to less functionality.
