In one word - it's IMPOSSIBLE.

Okay, you may be able to achieve what you want, though. The thing is,
the output of pdf and pcl is an image, Word and xml are structured text.
You can't go automatically from a structure-free format to a structured
format.

I'd investigate ghostscript, and see if you can get it to throw out a
text document rather than postscript (or feed the postscript through a
ps2txt filter), but if your original pdf or pcl was of a graphic, then
you're stuffed without an ocr filter in place.

So, basically, what you're after can be achieved, but without knowing
what is IN your input files, it's impossible to recommend (or even
guess) what might or might not work.

Cheers,
Wol

Subject: XML or WORD Format???

Does Anyone know of a way to convert either .pdf or PCL formats to XML
and/or WORD format that will run under HP-UX.

Thanks in advance.
