in thread CAM::PDF extract text and their coordinates from pdf..

Thanks David

I will look pdfminer and pstotext

I have searched pstotext in my Ghostscript "GPL Ghostscript 8.70 (2009-07-31)" But that command is not available.

In which version of the GS "pstotext" available.

Thanks,
Umesh

    Hi Umesh,

    It uses Ghostscript, but needs to be installed as a separate package. I'm running on debian which had the `pstotext` package readily available.

    But the source seems to be getting harder to find. Slackware has an archive.

    Hmm, maybe I do need to get back to work on adding word and line consolidation to PDF::ToText.
