I used the following instructions to build the PHP wrappers https://groups.google.com/d/msg/pdfnet-sdk/6a4PLMEjoQU/FykHay3HktIJ, unfortunately when running the Optimizer tests in de Samples directory I get the output listed below, the rest of the examples seem to run fine.

PDFNet is running in demo mode.
PHP Fatal error: No matching function for overloaded 'Optimizer_Optimize' in /home/unitrust/wrappers_build/PDFNetWrappers/PDFNetC/Lib/PDFNetPHP.php on line 13859

I used the following versions for compiling/running the examples, the operating system that was used is CentOS 6.6.

- cmake version 2.8.11.2
- gcc (GCC) 4.8.2 20140120
- PHP 5.5.18
- Swig 3.0.2

Does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong or is this a bug in PDFTron?

Is this OptimizerTest.php file unmodified?

Or did you modify the PDFNetPHP.i file?

The Optimizer settings classes are nested classes, and so the PDFNetPHP.i file contains special information for the Optimizer settings.

I haven't touched the code yet. It's the unmodified version of OptimizerTest.php.

It looks like the error is occuring no line 91 of the OptimizerTest.php file, which is the second call to Optimizer.Optimize.

This means the first call to Optimize() on line 54 worked?

It is very unclear how line 54 would work, but not line 91.

Can you post the code surrounding the line 13859 in PDFNetPHP.php file?

You're right it doesn't work if you pass the settings parameter. If you omit that value it does work.

It definitely looks to be a problem with explictly declared OptimizerSettings class in the PDFNetPHP.i file. I suspect the latest SWIG 3.02 that you are using is not generating something compatible with our .i file anymore.

Can you please try the following.
1. Modify the ConverTest.php so that it uses a settings object. For example 

// Convert PDF document to HTML
echo(nl2br("Converting PDF to HTML\n"));
$outputFile = $outputPath."pdf2html";
$settings
= new HTMLOutputOptions()
;
Convert::ToHtml($inputPath."newsletter.pdf", $outputFile, $settings);
echo(nl2br("Saved ".$outputFile."\n"));

I suspect that this too will fail with the same error.

2. Rebuild the wrapper, but using SWIG 2.0.12. I think this will fix the issue.

I see this comment on the SWIG 3.0.0 release announcement, which makes me suspicious.

  • Nested class support added. This has been taken full advantage of in
    Java and C#. Other languages can use the nested classes, but require
    further work for a more natural integration into the target language.
    We urge folk knowledgeable in the other target languages to step
    forward and help with this effort.

I tried using swig 2.0.12 to rebuild the wrappers but I'm still getting the same error. But it does seem te be on a different line this time. Here's the build output and the fatal error when running the Optimizer test.

Modifying the ConvertTest.php also doesn't seem to make a difference.

You mean you modified the call to Convert.ToHtml to use the settings object? Did that work, or did you get the same error as with Optimizer?

Also, are you 32 or 64bit OS? And is your PHP process 32 or 64bit?

Using the Convert::ToHtml function with the options results in the same error:

PHP Fatal error:  No matching function for overloaded 'Convert_ToHtml' in /home/unitrust/wrappers_build/PDFNetWrappers/PDFNetC/Lib/PDFNetPHP.php on line 11297

PHP   5. convert_tohtml() /home/unitrust/wrappers_build/PDFNetWrappers/PDFNetC/Lib/PDFNetPHP.php:11297

It's the 64bit version of CentOS and the PHP process also runs on 64bit.

Is there any resolution for this yet?

I know this is an old thread but I came across it while searching how to build the PHP wrappers on Ubuntu 16.04 and PHP 5.6. (SWIG is not yet compatible with PHP 7 so that's not yet an option).

I was able to build the PHP wrappers using Swig 2, which I had to manually download and install from here: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/7.5/general/swig.html

I also had to completely remove the Build/ directory. I originally tried building the wrappers using Swig 3, and rebuilding the wrappers with Swig 2 didn't work until I removed the Build/ directory and started over from scratch.
