( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

xpdf comes with a pdftotext which I've had fairly good luck with. It also is smart enough to extract and preserve (most) formatting (or at least most of what's been in what I've run through it . . . :). Perhaps install that if you don't already have it and open a pipe from it.

Update: MENTAL NOTE: Wait until morning caffeine has taken effect enough for reading comprehension to function before attempting to solve problems. KTHXBAI.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
