[EP-tech] Re: Check uploaded document for PDF/A compatibility



The cfg.d/document_validate.pl configuration file is probably what you want

https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/lib/defaultcfg/cfg.d/document_validate.pl


Don't forget you can use backticks to call command-line utitilites if there isn't a perl library to do the work.  Something like:


my $pdf_file_path = $document->get_main->path;
my $cmd = '/usr/local/bin/thingy';
my $output = `$cmd --file=$pdf_file_path --verbose`; #whatever you need to do to call the command
if ($output && $output =~ m/this is a bad file/) #match output indicating failure
{
	push @problems, $repository->html_phrase('validate:pdf_not_ideal');
}
