comment How to extract text from pdf in script on Linux?
Thanks frabjous! In this case, I'm just extracting the text so that I can scan for specific strings (vendor names, account numbers) and patterns (invoice numbers and dates) - so no need to reformat or redisplay it. I appreciate the corroboration and the alternatives - and I'm sure others will too! -- Rob

Thanks for your quick response, Ignacio! I was already checking out pdftotext that comes w xpdf (from foolabs.com) - your answer prompted me to take another look, and I got it working. Poppler appears to have evolved from xpdf, so I will take a look at that too. Thanks again!
