How to Work With a PDF in Python (Overview)

The Portable Document Format or PDF is a file format that can be used to present and exchange documents reliably across operating systems. While the PDF was originally invented by Adobe, it is now an open standard that is maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). You can work with a preexisting PDF in Python by using the PyPDF2 package.

PyPDF2 is a pure-Python package that you can use for many different types of PDF operations.
