2.2. Other General Properties

This section describes other notable general properties of PDF, aside from its imaging model.

2.2.1. Portability

PDF files are represented as sequences of 8-bit binary bytes. A PDF file is designed to be portable across all platforms and operating systems. The binary representation is intended to be generated, transported, and consumed directly, without translation between native character sets, end-of-line representations, or other conventions used on various platforms.
