Love linux

Postby guy » Wed May 14, 2014 1:38 pm

Got a pdf full of hi-res page images, clogging up the system when I try to open and search it. All I need is the text.
1. Quick web search on "Linux extract text from pdf"
2. $ man pdftotext
3. $ pdftotext -nopgbrk [filename]
Bingo!

I challenge any other OS user to find life so 1-2-3 cool.

Nothing to discuss - must be the wrong forum.
