Sometimes I want to quote some PDF on pure text, luckily enough it would have actual text rather than being an non-OCRed image, but often there's still the problem that the text on the PDF is truncated/formatted in a fake/dumb way, with actual "new lines" to break the page, which may not make the text completely unreadable when pasted in a text editor, but it's reasonably annoying, and may require quite some time to fix manually.

Run cron jobs using screen

Posted 09-28-2012 at 12:02 AM by Skaperen
