During development testing, I’d prefer to create uncompressed, non-binary PDF files with iTextSharp so that I can check their internals easily. Like Theodore said you can extract text from a pdf and like Chris pointed out. as long as it is actually text (not outlines or bitmaps). Best thing to do is buy Bruno. just hadnt had time to investigate the possibility but we routinely grab a federal document from a website but we only care about including the.

I have read a question post here in stackoverflow related to mine but it just read text not to extract it. But I need to get the algorithm right first.

This tool uses JavaScript and much of it will not work correctly without it enabled. But there’s no reply.

Theodore Bundie 31 2. PDF and compression iText 5. This can be handy when you need to debug a PDF document. You can not post a blank message.

According to the literature we have reviewed, iText is the best tool to use. Have you posted to their support list? But the results does not seem correct.


This is only possible since PDF version 1. I have tried the decodePredictor in iText passing the output stream from FlateDecode into decodePredictor. Please enter a title. I’m pretty sure the output from FlateDecode is correct because it could decode streams without decodeParms. It is probably due to my lack of understanding with using iTExt, and also I’m a novice in java.
