    I have 50k pdfs of rich content in my niche. I have a WP site and I have been looking for a way to suck the text off the PDFs. Im looking for a tool that will automatically go though the pdfs and output the text as a csv file.

    Does anyone know of a program that can do this?
    Thanks

    why not find a script that converts PDF to cvs then have a coder build a script to automate the whole process.

    There is a program called PdfToText that can make a text file out of pdfs. But you will need to do a little script writing to format it the exact way you want it.

    Wow OCR would be way to much afford. Why read the text as an image, when it is already saved in a file just in another format?

    There are free online PDF to Text convertors.

    Just Google Free Online PDF To Text.

    OP has 50k of pdf's, so online stuff is not a good idea :D

    Wondershare PDF Converter Pro will do the job. You can find it on most torrent trackers.
