Seems to work well now with double-spaced PDFs... or at least the one I tried on. Thanks a lot!

My dream tool for something like this would be able to recognize footnotes and treat them appropriately, but knowing how PDFs work (and the fact that they don't semantically mark footnotes as such), this is probably a pipe dream.

A more reasonably accomplished feature would break up typographical ligatures, though I could script this myself easily enough with sed or similar.

roger, if you want to be able to use it without using ./ before it, just copy the executable into your PATH, such as into the ~/bin/ folder (restart bash if need be).
