    You can copy text out of most PDF documents, but parsing PDF into text can be quite difficult, as the text may not even be text when it enters the PDF (e.g. scanned text stored as PDF), in which case you need to use OCR-techniques.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    Get the source, read the links etc
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
