in reply to Comparison word against pdf

I've done some rudimentary parsing of PDF's using CAM::PDF's getPageText() method, but I was only able to deal with PDF v1.4 formatted files though (v1.5 and v1.6 I couldn't parse).

I have not done anything similar in Word, but there must be something around that performs a similar extraction function.

Once you've extracted each file, then you'd need to write the comparator function.
