I am looking for a tool that can batch convert pdf to text
I don't want the tool to try maintain any sort of structure just print line by line with spaces between words.
All tools I have encountered so far pdftotext, pdf2text etc... all try seperate out structures and end up making a mess. The original document was poorly structured and after scanning a lot of structures are mixed up, so I want to get the most consistent from all my pdfs and the best way at present seems to extract each word line by line.
My purpose is to extract the text which contains key value pairs and compare it to data in a database.
