This module is 'The Next Generation' of Text::PDF::API which initially provided a nice API around the Text::PDF::* modules created by Martin Hosken.
So it seems it was originally a wrapper around Text::PDF that eventually incorporated all of the latter’s functionality (some of it apparently by copy & paste).
