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?
i always use an imaging sdk to extract texts from pdf files. it can be applied inc# , net, vb.net , etc. but i am not clear whether it can be applied in Lunix server , so if you haven't found a good way , you can have a try.
