Playing with PDF's

Last day I discovered 2 tricks, for playing with the acrobat PDF files.
when we open a PDF File from a URL, we can send parameters to the PDF plugin for doing specific actions like open the current pdf pointed in a specific page or with the search console open.

The available parameter for open a PDF are these:

  • nameddest=name : Specifies the named destination in the PDF. Usefull to open chapters.

  • page=pagenum : Open the PDF in the pagenum provided.

  • comment=commentID : Specifies a comment on a given page in the PDF. Use the page command before this command; for example: #page=1&comment=452fde0e-fd22-457c-84aa-2cf5bed5a349
  • pagemode=[bookmarks, thumbs, none (default)] : Displays bookmarks or thumbnails.
  • search=wordList: Search a space separeted words list

Example of usage:,page=10

UPDATED: follow the reference for more information

Expendable, what does expendable mean?
It's like someone
invites you to a party and you don't show up and It doesn't really matter.

Do you know Frank Miller?

Yesterday, I went to the cinema to watch "Sin City", I never had heart before about this film, so I asked a friend, what is Sin City? My friend told me that Sin City is a black comic series created by Frank Miller. So, I enjoy too much the film, of course when I knew that one scene was taken by Tarantino as a special guest director for 1 Million dollars... Wow! (Tarantino rocks!)

I found out that Frank Miller is the author of some comics such as "BATMAN (some episodes)", "DAREDEVIL", and "SIN CITY".

"Sin City" is the title for some histories, that take place in a city named "Basin City", commonly known as "Sin City". where the corruption is the bread of every day.
