    How to extract (formatted) text from a PDF file?

    hi there,

    i am looking for a dll to extract formatted text from a pdf file (the plain text plus information about font size and style).

    i already found dynapdf and pdflib which look quite promising but are also quite expensive (and overloaded for my purpose).

    Do you know a free or cheap dll to extract formatted text from a pdf file?

    thx
    Heinz

    See: Extract 1st page from file using C

    Whilst it's in the C forum, I think the answer is about the same - I doubt that you really would be too bothered whether the library you link to is C, C++ or Fortran, right?
