Bulk convert text files to PDF
Authored by: wallybear on Jun 08, '11 10:16:36AM

Too bad for the cure... :(

You're right, the text delimiters method is clearer; regarding Satimage osaxes they are really interesting, but long ago I promised myself to keep clear from osaxes (I got burned when some osaxes I used in my software stopped working with the next OS X release and found to be no more mantained); what's more, I should force my users to install them.

Ok for the (un)usefulness of converting images, but it was only an example; convert can process lots of different file kinds, and I don't know "a priori" which one I have to put in that list. Why should I limit a functionality given for free?

Regarding the deletion of the temp file when converting from doc/docx, I just found that the "-D" option of convert deletes the input file when finished, so it could be used as an alternative method.
