‘ The authentication key (API Key).
‘ Get your own by registering at https://app.pdf.co/documentation/api
Const API_KEY As String = “***********************************”

‘ Source PDF file to split
const SourceFile as String = “.\sample.pdf”
‘ Comma-separated list of page numbers (or ranges) to process. Example: ‘1,3-5,7-‘.
const Pages as String = “1-2,3-”

Sub Main()

‘ Create standard .NET web client instance

‘ Set API Key
webClient.Headers.Add(“x-api-key”, API_KEY)

‘ 1. RETRIEVE THE PRESIGNED URL TO UPLOAD THE FILE.
‘ * If you already have a direct file URL, skip to the step 3.

‘ Prepare URL for `Get Presigned URL` API call
