Re: Convert MS Word, MS Powerpoint etc to PDF by Seun(m): 10:38pm On Nov 02, 2005
Why convert MS office documents to PDF? Because PDF is a presentation format! You type with Word and you publish in PDF format for people to read and download.

I actually own all the adobe products (except video ones) so I have Adobe Acrobat professional which lets you make PDF's of whatever you want through the use of a virtual printer cheesy

Use Openoffice.org. It converts any document into .pdf format.

The only thing i hate about PDF is that some can't edit with it. It is read only.
Re: Convert MS Word, MS Powerpoint etc to PDF by brightk(m): 2:34pm On Nov 19, 2005
Hey fellas,

u can convert your pdf files to html with one click. I would also want any of u to help with a program or possibly give the URL of the site that can convert pdf files from one language to the other e.g from any foreign language to english. I could have attached the file (pdf2html) but its more than the stipulated size and i have forgotten the URL of where i got it from.

If you are still wondering any other ways to convert pdf to word or vice versa then try my little program.  It can convert any document to any format.

I have written this in java.  If you don't understand java or don't know how to run java let me know I will write again to show the necessary tools and method to use.

Below is a java file that will convert any document to any format


/*
* Main.java

//package converter;

import java.io.*;
       
/**

* @author Valentine Obih
*/
public class Main {
        /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception{
   
    FileInputStream fi;
    InputStreamReader ir;
    BufferedReader br;
   
    FileOutputStream fo;
    OutputStreamWriter ow;
    BufferedWriter bw;
   
   
    String temp;
    String in = args[0];
    String out = args[1];
       
    fi  = new FileInputStream(in);
    ir = new InputStreamReader(fi);
    br = new BufferedReader (ir);
       
    fo     = new FileOutputStream ( out );
    ow     = new OutputStreamWriter ( fo );
    bw     = new BufferedWriter ( ow );
   
       
       
        if ( args.length < 1 ){
                        System.out.println("Requires a filename with extension"wink;
        }if (args.length == 1 ){
                System.out.println("Requires two filenames with extension"wink;
        }else{
       
           
           
        try{
               while ((temp = br.readLine()) != null ) {
                   bw.write(temp);
                   }
                   br.close();
                   bw.close();
               }catch(Throwable e ){
                   e.getMessage();
        }
        }
    }
   
}

You can write a GUI using AWT from java or useC++/MFC, LaTex or VB can convert the algorithm to any specific language. and you will have you very own desktop apps for converting documents.  I hope it helps

Confusing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Re: Convert MS Word, MS Powerpoint etc to PDF by Seun(m): 10:12pm On Mar 25, 2006
sbucareer, your program is equivalent to the command line copy command. Is this a joke or are yo deliberately misinforming people? But why? cry
Re: Convert MS Word, MS Powerpoint etc to PDF by Nobody: 5:55am On Mar 26, 2006
I was just thinking the very same thing. i thot there'd be a reference to some sort of PDF class or sumn else,
Re: Convert MS Word, MS Powerpoint etc to PDF by sbucareer(f): 8:33am On Mar 27, 2006

Sorry I have not been in the forum for like four days now. I was very busy over the weekend. Anyway, Seun what do you mean that it looks like directory file copy? I am dealing with binary manipulations, converting the binary bits of pdf to a supplied argument at the command promot by the use of special Java API for manipulating binary bits. See Java API for Stream Buffer classes

Have you test the program to see if it work at all before postulating? I have actually written lots of these small task-management tool for my organization. If you have compiled it and run it by supplying two arguments at the commandLine, the first argument is the source file the second file is the destination file, i.e.

c:\>java Main source.pdf destination.doc

Run the argument at the commandLine and open up destination.doc and see if the content of source.pdf is not cascaded. Remember, you must have the source file in the same directory as the Main.java to achieve this. 

You can modify the class by using directory API to achieve running the file in any directory by supplying the UNC naming convention to the source file. I'd done that but since the thank you I get is that my program is a commandLine copy I will leave you to do the rest.

Hi

I tried with the main class but the output file created seems to be corrupted.

i.e. Tried to convert doc to pdf. When the out pdf is opened in pdf it says "not supported file type or because the file has been damaged"

Any idea

Thanks
