Thanks for the advise thinking about it I agree the name
indicates its for CGI only, when infact it doesnt use CGI or
require it to be used.
But was developing for an internal intranet system so used it
in the control program.
so new name could be PDFTXT I like to keep the name short and
any better ? Or suggestions would be appreciated.
As the PDF:: namespace already exists it wouldn't seem farfetched to
consider something in there. Unfortunately I do not understand much
about PDF. That makes suggestions difficult, but the important fact is
that "short and meaningful" for us usually implies at least a 2-level

Besides these I find people have created PDF related tools in the
namespaces Text::PDF (Martin Hosken <email@example.com>) and
Text::PDF::API (Alfred Reibenschuh <firstname.lastname@example.org>). But
the Text:: category is quite inconsistent category and doesn't help
much visavis the fact that PDF is a widely known acronym.
So I'd suggest PDF::Report or PDF::Generator or something similar.
