To some great degree I have replaced the text extraction routine in my PDF2TXT script with Tika allowing the tool to read a much wider number of types of documents (PDF, Word, Mac Pages, Powerpoint (maybe), etc.) "Thank you Nicolas." I have also created the barest of Git repositories hosting the (Perl) code:
* PDF2TXT - http://bit.ly/1bJRyh8
* Git repository - https://github.com/ericleasemorgan/pdf2txt
Just a reminder, PDF2TXT extracts plain text from a file, and does some rudimentary text mining against the result.
