package main

import (
    . ""

func main() {
    doc := NewPDFDoc()
    page := doc.PageCreate()     // Start a new page
    doc.PagePushBack(page)       // Add the page to document
    doc.Save("output.pdf", uint(SDFDocE_linearized)); // Save the document as a linearized PDF
  1. Initialize your go.mod
go mod init
  1. Fetch the dependencies for your project.
go get
  1. Set your PATH to point to the shared libraries in pdftron-go in your current command shell. Replace your_version with the version of pdftron-go you are running.
set PATH=%PATH%;%GOPATH%/pkg/mod/

Or in your powershell

$env:PATH += ';$env:GOPATH/pkg/mod/'

You may also copy the DLL files from the above path to the same place as your project executable.

  1. Run your created application.
go run main.go

Running PDFTron Go samples
