What would you like to do?
GhostScript PDF to text stdout
# requires ghostscript to be installed first - on mac, install with `brew install ghostscript`
# -sDEVICE=txtwrite - text writer
# -sOutputFile=- - use stdout instead of a file
# -q - quiet - prevent writing normal messages to output
# -dNOPAUSE - disable prompt and pause at end of each page
# -dBATCH - indicates batch operation so exits at end of processing
gs -sDEVICE=txtwrite -sOutputFile=- -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH to-be-processed.pdf
