in reply to pdf to text

man xpdf, then man pdftotext
You'll find: pdftotext [options] [pdf-file [text-file]],
you can use `` or qx ,perlfunc:system and perlfunc:exec to execute the command from within perl.
then open the file and read it.
open (FILE, "yourfilename") or die "can't open : $!"; close FILE;


*Update*: Ah, i see prasadbabu understood your question better than i did, i second to his post.

    i need to extract the text from pdf files to an array element how can i do that using perl
      arunmep,

      A few of your previous nodes ask this question, is there a particular part of the process you are having problems with? Have you used Super Search to find any examples? This has been covered before.

      Cheers,
