Text Annotation - Pdf

Pdf(Portable document format) has beautiful feature called text annotation. you can add detailed text information with available clipped images

Available annotations in current pdf spec are :

Text Annotation - Prawn

Via prawn you can define Text annotations easily. A convenience method for creating Text annotations. rect must be an array of four numbers, describing the bounds of the annotation. contents should be a string, to be shown when the annotation is activated.

Text annotation by Code - Sample:

prawn_pdf = Prawn::Document.new
prawn_pdf.text_annotation(rect, contents, options = {}) 

Ruby Select Quick note

if we need to grep some strings from an array with a defined pattern, it is advisable to use select. and this is how i used it.

array = ['dhhjdfshgd', 'sadsdhjgsfgdhf   ', 'example@gmail.com']
array.select {|item| item[/\A([^@\s]+)@((?:[-a-z0-9]+\.)+[a-z]{2,})\Z/i]}

Quite useful for me.
