    Question Extract text from PDF??

    I want them to be able to view only the text inside the PDF (no images).

    I am running a Lunix server, not a windows server where I can use COMs.

    Can this be done in PHP? Thanks

    Not with the built-in PHP functions (at least not easily). Your best bet is probably to search for a third-party class/function that can do this.

    I searched everywhere but could not find a third party plugin that would do that. Does anyone have any recommendations?
