If you have the skills to use it (I.e., are a C programmer), and
have MS VC++ 4.x available (the only supported compiler), you can
download the FDK (for 5.5 only) from:


It's a multi-piece download, and there is one tiny but oh-so-helpful
file missing (write me off-list about that), but it is now free.  I
could not find a license agreement, and finally got a clear answer
from Adobe about that:

I gather that what you get for joining ADA is an additional set of
sample apps, and direct tech support.  But if you read the .h files,
and read the enormous PDF docs *very* carefully, you can manage...
OTOH, if you *can* afford the $1K/year membership, you may well save
enough engineering time in a month or two to pay for it... your call.
