Summary: non-compression of pdfxform

Initial Comment:

would it be possible to add a feature to avoid
compression of the user defined pdfxform stream?

[goal:  I want to define a string that I can then
change via a shell/perl script in the .pdf file itself.
 I know I have to keep the same number of characters.]


\newcount\XOBJA
\setbox1=\hbox{12345678909876543210123456789} % this is
a special
string that one can later replace in the pdf file by hand
\pdfxform 1 \XOBJA=\pdflastxform

\begin{document}
Here is my string on page \arabic{page}: \pdfrefxform
\XOBJA
\end{document}

$ sed 's/12345678909876543210123456789/for user
pdftex.../' < myfile.pdf


I experimented with setting pdfcompresslevel and
resetting it, but it is not reliable in when
compression starts.  in any case, I do not want the
rest at low compression, just my own XOBJ xform.

regards,

/iaw

Ivo,
sorry for not reacting earlier. Adding this feature seems
possible. Is it still needed?
