Thanks for responding, Chris. You'd be interested to know (as I mentioned in the OP), that the question "how do I extract text from a PDF" comes up a lot, and that the standard answer is always CAM::PDF.

After your response, it seems that there is no Perl module for reading/rendering PDFs, and that about the only reliable OOS way to do it is via pdftotext from either Xpdf or Poppler.

[Tux]: so, another app with gtk GUI had something similar, but it defined the IM_MODULE(s) as cedilla.
[Tux]: when I set QT_IM_MODULE and GTK_IM_MODULE both to c<xim> and *unset* XMODIFIERS, all works fantastic
Tux => $HOME
[Tanktalus]: great, now I'm going to have to convert html codes to text for display... :)
