Topic: XPdf and Scheduler

Hi,

I want to extract some text from PDF files and I found this application which can use to extract data from PDF files. XPDF can easily use using commandlne prompt. http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/


The problem is I dont know how to use ruby controllers to call upon the application and convert the pdf to txt format.

I also wish to use the scheduler to call upon this function... Can anyone give me some advice?


The best is the function can auto schedule a timing to ftp a pdf from a url link and convert into txt file using xpdf.

thanks in advance.
