pdf2lrf

Part of libprs500 v0.3.81. It extracts the text from PDF files and converts them to LRF. Preserves bold and italics. See attached demo.

It doesn't support embedded images and results are not going to be satisfactory for complex PDF files. But for converting simple novels, it works great.

Linux users: If you want support for PDF links then you need to install poppler from CVS.

To use:
Code:
pdf2lrf "mybook.pdf"
Enjoy.

Would it be possible to have PDF2HTML so we can then edit the text/book how we want and then use html2lrf to create a properly formatted book?

And this is a great step forward for PDF conversion without the need for Acrobat.

foreign characters

Could you explain how to get correct non-english characters from pdf? I get strange results with polish language.
a word "CZĘŚĆ" is converted into:
<b>CZ </b><br>
<b>E ´S ´</b><br>
<b>C I</b><br>

Thanks, I tried it, but I can only get the error message:
Error: Couldn't find unicodeMap file for the 'iso-8859-2' encoding
Is there a list of encoding names?

Thanks for your input, I discovered that my pdf has embedded font without unicode map, which may be the reason of all problems and there is no easy way of fixing it :-(

This is a MESS.
Line breaks ignored.
Page breaks after 1-2 lines on a page, IN THE MIDDLE of the sentence.
