hello,

does anybody out there have a pstotext binary
to upload via ftp that works without ghostscript
installed on the machine ???

ok,

i solved this on my own:

pstotext seems not to work without ghostscript
but pdftotext does not need ghostscript.

here you can download source and precompiled
binaries from pdftotext:
http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/download.html

x86, Linux (glibc 2.2, staticly linked to Motif, t1lib, and FreeType 2): xpdf-3.00-linux.tar.gz (4544077 bytes)

just download the xpdf package - untar - and upload the
pdftotext file via ftp


hope it helps others

tomas,

Have you been successful in using pdftotext? I am able to use pdftotext to create the filename.txt file through the command prompt (Windows), but I can't get phpdig to index that txt file or to call upon pdftotext correctly.

If you are successful can you share with me your config.php file so that I may compare it to my own?

Thanks
