The tree structure allows PDF applications, using little memory to quickly open a document containing thousands of pages. If a PDF have 63 pages, the page tree node will like this The API is very similar and even hypertext functions are supported. There is also a php extension for pslib in PECL, called ps.

Origin is at the lower left and the basic unit is the DTP pt. Yet another addition to the PDF text extraction code last posted by jorromer. The code only seemed to work for PDF 1. The code also handles closing brackets in the text stream, which were ignored by the previous version.
My regular expression skills are somewhat lacking, so improvements may possible by a more skilled programmer. I'm sure there are still cases that this function will not handle, but I haven't come across any yet So you are probably passing duff paths to pdf2text.
Just make darned sure you are in control of what is being passed through to your system call. I recently use mattb code below for the extraction of text from PDF files. I modify this code for only extract text fields.

Oddly enough, I turned off ZLib. I guess the compression is confusing IE. I tried leaving out the content-length header thinking maybe it was unmatched filesize uncompressed number vs actual received compressed size , but then without it it screws up Firefox too. Will post over in the PDF section as well.

And this all mixed [so seperated in files for transparancy]. Correct me if i'm wrong [mail me to] ing. I am trying to extract the text from PDF files and use it to feed a search engine Intranet tool.
At least, all words need to be separated by spaces then used as keywords , and the "junk" codes removed for example: binary data, pictures I start modifying the interesting function posted by Swen, and here is the my current version that starts to work quite well with PDF version 1.
Sorry for having a quite different style of programming. I've been looking for a way to extract plain text from PDF documents needed to search for text inside 'em.
Not being able to find one I wrote the needed functions myself. Hope it will save you some time. Good luck, Boris.
