- Numerous PDFs in a network folder, or to be pulled into the solution via a network scanner
- Need to read the bar code and extract the 5 pieces of data for indexing. OR, OCR portions of the page with the same data as in the bar code.
- Use this data to store the document for search and retrieval later - methods may vary. Would like documents placed into folders by the date in the bar code.
- Some sort of compression or load into a database is preferred to keep file size down.
- Windows or Linux based
- OpenSource only: I want to get my hands dirty with it.

Any ideas?
