Version 3.2
February 28, 2009

PDF to TXT (also written PDF2TXT) is a free Windows program for converting
files in Portable Document Format (.pdf extension) to plain text(.txt
extension).  The program lets you convert multiple files in a single,
batch operation, either from a GUI dialog or a console-mode command line.
The resulting text files can be read in almost any editing or viewing
program.  PDF2TXT, itself, also includes a viewing area for reading PDF

The 3.2 version adds the ability to convert from PDF to HTML format via a
new checkbox called Extra HTML (which may be invoked with Alt+X).  If
checked, a .htm target file is produced in addition to the .txt one.  A
different conversion technique is used, originally posted at

This option may be worth trying if the .txt result is unsatisfactory.  It
may also be useful for webmasters who want to post AN HTML alternative to
a PDF.  The conversion translates visual aspects of the PDF such as fonts,
but not structural elements such as headings, unfortunately.
