Remarks

File specifications (see PdfFileSpecification) ordinarily refer to files external to the PDF file in which they occur. When a PDF file is archived or transmitted, all external files it refers to must accompany it to preserve the file’s integrity.

Embedded files address this problem by allowing the contents of referenced files to be embedded directly within the body of the PDF file. This makes the PDF file a self-contained unit that can be stored or transmitted as a single entity.
