# This sample explores the structure and content of a tagged PDF document and dumps 
# the structure information to the console window.
#
# In tagged PDF documents StructTree acts as a central repository for information 
# related to a PDF document's logical structure. The tree consists of StructElement-s
# and ContentItem-s which are leaf nodes of the structure tree.
#
# The sample can be extended to access and extract the marked-content elements such 
# as text and images.
