PDFBox works well for this although last time I used it, it was somewhat 
slow.  More info can be found here <http://www.pdfbox.org/>

Help with : send "hello world" ASCII text to Linux serial port and read into a text file in java virtual machine...
Hello. Excuse the fact that I'm a newbie. I have a linux v 2.4 box with serial port something like ttyS0. I have a java VM running. I want to be able to pass the phrase"hello world" that is sent to the serial port with hyperterminal from a PC to a .java program running inside java virtual machine. I'm not sure if I'm on the right track with: FileInputStream, fis read() I guess the idea is to read 1 character at a time and build up a file like textfile.txt I can only use printable characters. Maybe I need some flags like: start_of_text and end_of_text are needed? I just want to able to read the text file after it has been sent, and the "hello world" is now there! Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance. lang.help wrote: > Hello.

Read text from PDF file in .NET
I need to do some indexing of PDF files from a .NET program. I can access the properties (subject, author and such) via COM objects (CAcroApp, CAcroAVDoc, CAcroPDDoc) but not the actual text of the document. Is it possible to extract the text without having to pay hundreds of $ for 3 party software or write a parser? (in other words, can I get it via the COM objects or something like that ?)
