  Description     : SAMBox PDF processor

SAMBox is an Apache PDFBox 2.0.0 fork intended to be used as PDF
processor for Sejda and PDFsam related projects. The main differences
between PDFBox and SAMBox are:
 * Lazy loading/parsing of PDF objects
 * Multiple I/O implementations to read from
 * Minimized garbage collector through the use of a pool of java.lang.Stringbuilder
 * PDF streams are read directly from the underlying source through the concept of
   bounded views
 * Removal of unused PDFBox features like preflight validator, fdf and digital signature
 * Documents can be saved using objects stream to store PDF objects
