used to read pdf files. I have been trying to find any other thread
which address this... but was unable to get a resolution.

text string in any of the lines to read the report name.

Any help is appreciated.

Perl PDF modules
Hi all. I'm trying to write a script which will insert text into a PDF template file and output a new PDF file. I can do this with PDF:Reuse - but I have to specify the co-ordinates for where the text should appear. What I want, instead, is to be able to replace "place-holders" in the template file with the text. Can any one suggest a Perl PDF module which will help with this? Or any other way of doing it? -- Best wishes, Geoff Wilkins GeoffW@wordsmith.demon.co.uk Geoff Wilkins wrote: > Hi all. Do not multi-post! http://www.uwasa.fi/~ts/http/crospost.html -- G...

Or any > other way of doing it? You could define your place-holders as form fields and use either Adobe's FDF toolkit or PDF::FDF::Simple to generate the data to plug into them. http://search.cpan.org/~schwigon/PDF-FDF-Simple-0.03/lib/PDF/FDF/Simple.pod I haven't done this, I just have a vague understanding of how PDF and FDF work together. Perhaps Adobe's Perl toolkit, documentation, tutorial on FDF can help, they are on this page (and requires a free registration to download it): http://partners.adobe.com/asn/acrobat/f...

Module to get text from a PDF page?
I'm looking for a Perl module that will give me the text from a page of a simple (uncompressed, unencrypted) PDF. I've found several modules on CPAN that will write text into PDFs, but nothing to get it out. The closest possibilities look like PDF::API2 and Text::PDF. I've been working with them, and they seem to be able to get at a lot of meta-information in a PDF, but unable to get at the actual text in the file. My workaround is to shell out to pdftotext to get the text, but I'd like to have a pure-perl solution if possible. Does anyone know of a module that can do this? Thanks, Wade ...

The latest version of the complete perlfaq is at http://faq.perl.org . -------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.4: What are Perl 4, Perl 5, or Perl 6? (contributed by brian d foy) In short, Perl 4 is the past, Perl 5 is the present, and Perl 6 is the future. The number after perl (i.e. the 5 after Perl 5) is the major release of the perl interpreter as well as the version of the language. Each major version has significant differences that earlier versions cannot support. The current major release of Perl is Perl 5, and was released in 1994. It can run scripts from the previous major release, Perl 4 (March 1991), but has significant differences. It introduced the concept of references, complex data structures, and modules. The Perl 5 interpreter was a complete re-write of the previous perl sources. Perl 6 is the next major version of Perl, but it's still in development in both its syntax and design. The work started in 2002 and is still ongoing. Many of the most interesting features have shown up in the latest versions of Perl 5, and some Perl 5 modules allow you to use some Perl 6 syntax in your programs. You can learn more about Perl 6 a...

How do I get Voice-to-Text back in my Android 4.3 for SMS texting?
All of a sudden, I lost the little microphone icon in my default SMS text application on the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 on Android 4.3. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7373/12344496284_046d7946d1_o.png This is an important omission, since I do offline speech-to-text SMS text messages (I almost never use my fat fingers to text). To get back that offline microphone app, I suspect I need to *install* something, because it *was* there from the beginning - but now it's (suddenly) gone! But what free app do I download to get *back* that little microphone? On Thu, 06 Feb 2014 15:43:25 +0000, Danny D'Amico wrote: > But what free app do I download to get *back* that little microphone? Googling, I first thought that little microphone which is now missing in the keyboard might have originally come from "Google Voice Search": https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.voicesearch But, "Google Voice Search" is already installed, and has been installed since before I upgraded from Android 4.2.1 to Android 4.3. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7323/12347746965_fb97022d25_o.jpg Q: What is the app that adds a microphone to the standard keyboard?

Help with pdf to text
I am trying to use the sample of code posted by thodge at ipswich dot qld dot gov dot au found here: http://au2.php.net/pdf In order to convert a PDF file to a string. I am currently trying with this document: http://www.tececo.com/files/appraisals/GlasserTecEcoAppraisal.pdf however others fail in the same fashion. Basically the file read works, since echoing $content after this point: $fp = fopen($sourcefile, 'rb'); $content = fread($fp, filesize($sourcefile)); fclose($fp); Works fine, however using echo pdf2string($sourcefile) the final result of this script is blank output. Can anyone suggest what could be the problem in the way I am using it, or another easy to use, cross platform script that will extract the text from PDF files? Entire script is copied here for easy reference (sorry but not very sure what is going wrong, i have no experiance with this): <?php function pdf2string($sourcefile) { $fp = fopen($sourcefile, 'rb'); $content = fread($fp, filesize($sourcefile)); fclose($fp); echo $content; $searchstart = 'stream'; $searchend = 'endstream'; $pdfText = ''; $pos = 0; $pos2 = 0; $startpos = 0; while ($pos !== false && $pos2 !== false) { $pos = strpos($content, $searchstart, $startpos); $pos2 = strpos($content, $searchend, $startpos + 1); if ($pos !== false && $pos2 !== false){ if ($content[$pos] == 0x0d && $co...
