PDF Vole 20110411

Lightweight application which enables you to easily analyze the internal structure and contents of any PDF file, as well as debug it
PDF Vole is a software utility that can be used in order to aid people in debugging and analyzing PDFs that did not render properly, as well as normal ones.

The upside of a portable app

The installation process can bypassed altogether, as this program is portable. As a consequence, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any changes and no leftovers are going to remain on the drive after its removal.

It is also important to mention here that you can copy the program files to a USB pen drive and thus, take PDF Vole anywhere with you and use it on any computer you have been granted access to.

Simple-to-handle interface

The GUI you are met with presents a minimal build, as it only encloses a menu bar a folder structure and a pane in which to view details. The appearance can also be customized, by simply choosing another skinf from the built-in list. Although no Help contents are provided by the developers, all types of users can work with this tool without facing any difficulties.

Upload items and view detailed information

It is possible to upload PDFs with the help of a file browser, as well as the “drag and drop” feature, thus enhancing ease of use. The folder structure presents the trailer and object reference table information for each item, as well as more detailed information, such as creation date, producer, type, length, size and contents of all contained objects.

Bottom line

To conclude, PDF Vole is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to analyzing and debugging PDF files. The interface is accessible to all users, the response time is good, the amount of data available is pretty impressive and it does not hamper the system’s performance.
