in reply to pdf2txt?

xpdf comes with a utility called pdftotext. Perhaps that is what you are looking for? Also, searching google for 'pdftotext' I found another application that looks to do the same thing on windows.

xpdf can be found at: http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/

Hope that helps.

    It looks like the best solution; thanks. I was hoping for something Perlish that I could use deep in my Perl script, but sometimes you just have to play the hand you're dealt.
