dingo,

I d/l'd your 4.3 pet but could not get a menu entry after installing in Boxpup 431 or jrb's special 431 (with Broadcom wl).

Worked from CLI, though.

How do I get a menu entry? 'fixmenus' didn't give menu, either.

Thanks, dingo.

The message saying that a menu entry would be in Menu > Document during the pet installation led me to believe a menu entry really would be created there. My mistake.

I do appreciate the app packaged as a pet! Thanks!

Pdftohtml is included in Puppy 4.3.1. You run it from the command line.
Code:
pdftohtml xxx.pdf


I know this is a relatively old post, but... beware...
It's not in wary 0.7, for example, and it might not be included in other Puppies...

Second, you'll get best results with pdftohtml typing

Code:
pdftohtml -c xyz.pdf


This will give you, when you open the converted file in your browser, the page listing in a small column on the left and the main text, separated by pages (aka frames), in the main window. This will also extract the images in the pdf, if there are any.

For a continuous text, type

Code:
pdftohtml -noframes xyz.pdf


Typing "pdftohtml" in a console window will give you the entire series of options.

Further help on pdftohtml is available here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdftohtml/forums/forum/150221
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdftohtml/forums/forum/150220
http://vertito.blogspot.com/2007/11/howto-convert-pdf-to-htmlxmlpng-in.html

Theoretically, pdftohtml saves you the expense of a big pdf editor: you convert your pdf file with it, you modify it with amaya or kompozer or another html editor (even in OpenOffice's web writer, although that's being spartan and I don't recommend it!). Then you re-export or "re-print" your edited copy back to pdf format.

For those interested in processing pdf files directly in pdf, puppy has PDFEdit here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Pdfedit-0.4.3-Lucid.pet

An alternative pdf processor, pdf-shuffler, is also dicussed here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45826&sort=lastpost&start=15

We also have a brief intro to pdf and links here :
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PDF/show?time=2010-08-26%2007:11:31

Now you can edit pdf's in Puppy to your heart's content! Razz Have fun!

Just found this for on line conversion from pdf to html or txt, for those who do not want to install anything on their machine !

http://www.pdf2html.org/

http://www.pdf2text.org/

And the reverse:

http://html-pdf-converter.com

Also, pdf to word

http://www.pdftoword.com/fr/default.aspx

Untested. Tell me if it works? Smile

PS. : You'll find others with your search engine, e.g. at
