I'm running freebsd6 and xpdf 3.01_2. I've got pdfs that i want to
convert to ps and text documents in four different areas in my home
directory. I could convert them such as:
pdfto format file1.pdf file2.ps etc.
but i was wondering if there was a faster way? My second issue is some of
these files are pdf 1.6 and as i've already tried xpdf won't convert these
docs, does anyone have xpdf working with pdf 1.6 files?
Second, after i convert all these docs there are three patterns i'd like
to remove from them, all having spaces and & signs in them. Again, i could
do this manually, but i was wondering one if there was a faster way and two
if i could do this on the tail end of the conversion process so i would only
have to issue one command and come back probably a while later, these files
are big, and it's all done?
