I am trying to run a service that I have set up on my mac from a terminal. The service extracts text from a PDF which is what I am trying to do systematically but I have not found a way to execute the new service from a terminal ( or from perl).
I'm open to other ways to extract the text in a terminal or perl ( but PDF::API2 have failed due to problems with the pdf but the service does not fail).
