#include "ltocr.h"

L_LTOCR_API L_INT EXT_FUNCTION L_OcrDocumentManager_AppendDocuments(srcDocument, dstDocument)

L_OcrDocument srcDocument; source document handle
L_OcrDocument dstDocument; destination document handle

Appends two OCR document handles while they are still in memory.

Parameter Description
srcDocument Source document handle.
dstDocument Destination document handle.

Returns

SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function appends two OCR document handles that was previously created by calling L_OcrDocumentManager_CreateDocument while they are still in memory. For more information on creating OCR document files, refer to L_OcrDocumentManager_CreateDocument.

After appending the document files you can convert them to any of LEADTOOLS supported document formats like PDF, DOC, DOCX, TXT, and many other formats.
