Default PDF to HTML conversion

May I know whether there are any ASP components to convert a PDF file to an exactly similar HTML document ?

Thanks

Hey,

Probably not, you need to look for a Third Party solution.

Sorry for not wording it properly. I mean is there any third party components which can convert a PDF file to equivalent HTML ?

I have spent so much time with google. There are HTML to PDF conversion components as well as stand-alone application. But I could not find out a component which can convert a PDF to HTML.

Hey,

Try looking at Adobe. I haven't seen a need to go from PDF to HTML...

Do you want to convert all types of PDF to html?
PDF uses post-script language. If you can find a third party software, it has limits. The whole point of pdfs are that they can't be converted into other formats. Their purpose is for display only. My background is in graphics and I don't think there is any software that can completely convert all PDFs into html.

Hey,

I don't know if you will find anything that "completely" converts everything over, but there is OCR-based software that can do that sort of conversion. There's got to be, especially if scanner software can extract recognized text from within a scanned document. That's an image.

Thanks for all the responses.

The COM from BCL tenhnologies gives the solution I required. Thanks Yehuda for suggesting this.

Actually, I don't want to convert all PDF to HTML. I just want to convert PDFs with text and image alone.
