PDFlib TET (Text Extraction Toolkit) reliably extracts text, images and metadata from any PDF file. It is available as a library/component and as a command-line tool. PDFlib TET makes available the text contents of a PDF as Unicode strings or structured XML, plus detailed glyph and font information. With PDFlib TET you can retrieve the corresponding Unicode values for text in a PDF document, as well as its position on the page.

In addition to low-level text retrieval TET contains advanced content analysis algorithms for determining word boundaries, removing redundant duplicate text (such as shadows and artificial bold). Using the auxiliary pCOS interface you can retrieve arbitrary objects from the PDF, such as metadata, hypertext, etc.

With PDFlib TET you can:

  • Extract text from PDF, e. g. to store it in a database
  • Implement a search engine for processing PDF
  • Convert the text content of PDF pages to XML for processing...
