PDF parser

Hi, Experts! I want to parse PDF files (in each file there is only one A4 paper) and extract text values and image objects. Is it any suitable component for this task?

Use freeware package Xpdf: http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/download.html

It has several command line tools compiled for windows:
 * pdftotext.exe  - is for extracting text
 * pdfimages.exe  - is for extracting images
 * pdfinfo.exe  - if for extracting pdf tags

Here is an example how to get the Text from PDF file : http://www.swissdelphicenter.ch/torry/showcode.php?id=2169
Also there are several components on Torry : www.torry.net. Just Type in PDF in The Quick Search.
You could also Import the Adobe Reader Ocx file and gain access to the functions you need to extract
the text/images you need (similar to the above example).

You can take the free .Net iText application, convert it to a DLL or ActiveX and use it in your Delphi application.
