in reply to Extracting text from PDF. No really

pdftotext from poppler-0.6.4/ xpdf 3.02 gives a decent result for me:

    wazoox, you're a **star** - I had version 3.01 of xpdf installed - upgrading to 3.02 fixed that issue.

    many thanks!

      I can only concur - this utility is brilliant and works much better than any of the Perl modules I have come across so far. Thanks so much for bringing it up! I will investigate it in further detail from now on.

      Cheers -
