[REBOL] Re: Converting Word .DOC and .PDF to text files

Hi Anton, On Thursday, September 26, 2002, 11:54:15 AM, you wrote: A> Gabriele wrote a pdf generator, but he said parsing A> pdf files is really hard, but perhaps just the text A> might be easier. It depends. If you are lucky, getting the text out of it is really easy. You can easily get the text out of a PDF generated by PDF Maker. However, if the file is compressed and/or encrypted, you need to do a fair amount of job to get to the text... And usually, PDF files are at least compressed.
