Section 7.6 of the pdfTeX manual describes \pdfobj and has the following
> When <object type spec> is not given,
> pdfTeX no longer creates a dictionary object
> with contents <general text>, as it did in
> the past.
Combining what else is written in that section with what is given in
"General definitions and syntax rules" I concluded that \pdfobj must be
followed by an absolute reference number or "stream" or "file" -- otherwise
nothing would happen.
However, as per the code indicated in my previous post (Subject: "RE:
possible to write
\pdfobj <general text>
which appears to contradict the quote above.
So what exactly is being said by the line quoted above?
