Thanks for the explanation. I added the optdepend.

It's an optional run-time dependency that can be enabled with a command-line flag, the same as pngout and jbig2. It's an image processor like pngout, but with multi-threading support. You can use it by calling:

pdfsizeopt --use-image-optimizer=ECT $input

Or in conjunction with other image optimizes:

pdfsizeopt --use-jbig2 --use-image-optimizer=ECT $input

This is discussed in the Image optimizers section of the pdfsizeopt README.

Ah, thanks for that. I'll fix the optdepends issue in a minute.

I'm not sure about ECT, though. Is it a compile-time dependency? In this case, I don't think we can make it an optional dependency. I'm also uncertain as to when the command line argument you gave needs to be placed. The upstream README isn't very clear about this either.

ect has been added to the AUR (, and is supported by pdfsizeopt; it could be made an optional dependency, and enabled with use-image-optimizer=ECT

Also, there's a typo in the description of the optional dependencies:

jbig2enc (jbig2enc-git) (optional) – to manage JBIG2 parts [use --use-pngout=true] 
pngout (optional) – to optimise the size of PNG parts [use --use-jbig2=true]

The flags in the description for these are reverse.

Done. Not sure why it didn't before...

Please, fix the .SRCINFO file

shtrom commented on 2017-01-25 09:53

Ah, good point. Fixed.

Why does this still depend on subversion?

shtrom commented on 2016-10-12 10:10

Good point, fixed.

Shouldn't it conflict with pdfsizeopt-svn?
