How can I do this, on Mac, Linux or Windows?

Sort, OCR, export text from PDFs

I am in need of a server-side Linux or Unix-based software solution that will sort uploaded PDF files that can be PDF-native (that is, created in such a way that the text in the PDF is freely copyable), PDFs with embedded text over images (usually the result of a previous OCR job), and PDF-scanned, which are PDFs containing no text, only scanned images. The PDF-native files and PDFs with embedded text it will extract text from, the PDF-scanned files it will then OCR and export that text. [more inside]

Is there a way to upload a pdf file to Vox, or a workaround to get content displayed in relatively the same format, or should I just give it up?

I have been trying to find a way to upload a pdf file (16 MB - a book with photos and text) to Vox for quite a while and I think I have finally come to the realization that it probably just won't work. Is this a losing battle from which I should bow out gracefully or might there be an alternate route?

I want to download all files from a page, but there's a catch

How can I download a bunch of .pdfs from a webpage all at once? The page I'm looking at is a list of .pdfs available (for a class I'm in - course materials), with a link to download each .pdf file. I've tried using the Firefox extension downthemall, but there's a catch - the links I click to download the .pdfs individually are javascript popups that look like this: javascriptf:pop('docs/12004/andes_vegetation.pdf','yes',",",'12004'); Is there a way to grab all of these at once, or am I doomed to clicking each and every link to open a new window, save as, etc.?

excel, doc, html, txt To pdf Batch Converter

I am looking for a server-side application, which will convert Excel documents (separate books or entire documents) along with html files, txt files, and doc files. The application will need to be able to watch folders "HotFolders" and batch convert automatically. I have done a good bit of searching and have not found anything that will work so far. If this was not an application, but was a .dll file this will work as well. Thanks.
