IDEA?: PDF to DOC/HTML/RTF/TXT
« on: November 08, 2005, 07:37:46 AM »
Good  Morning  Everyone!  :D

I've been searching for a FREEWARE utility to help me convert many of my PDF files  I have to any of the extensions mentioned. I can only find one that is resonible  in it's pricing of $9.99. Don't get me wrong, that's a good price, but there is only 1 that was found.

The rest are averaging in the area of $30 or higher, but NO FREEWARE competition at all. I know that if at least one PDF converter existed, and did what was needed, it would be a utility that would get a lot of use.

For myself, I have several PDF's, that I created, and have since lost, deleted, etc, thte original document from which thtey were created, and now I have only the PDF remaining. Impossible to update without the orginal document. Instead, your left with having to create a whole new PDF everytime, unless you're loaded witth money and can afford what  is  out there. The util I found  for cheap, well,  I had to  dig for a while to locate it.

The average internet user will not have the knowledge to dig as deeply, thus they are presented with many other choices that will cost a pretty penny.

If I've overlooked aa util thtat does exist that is FREEWARE, please by all means to let me know?

Thanks,

Randy

pdf to html at http://www.snapfiles...om/get/pdf2html.html   - freeware, command line
pdf to text at http://www.ctdeveloping.com/ - freeware, converts to text only which may limit usefulness depending on pdf content
PDF Image extraction Wizard at  http://www.rlvision.com/pdfwiz/about.asp - freeware. Not sure exactly what it does.

Perfect!

Thank you, I'll check these out, I've got to get these things updated. I hate it when  this happens.

Thanks again,

Randy
