The different format handlers (pdf, xps, etc.) interpret pages to a “device”. Devices are the basis for everything that can be done with a page: rendering, text extraction and searching. The device type is determined by the selected construction method.
- class Device
- __init__(self, object, clip)
Constructor for either a pixel map or a display list device.
- __init__(self, textpage, flags=0)
Constructor for a text page device.
