10.4: Batch text conversion with textutil
Authored by: SDO on Jun 04, '06 01:00:04PM
Would seem that 10.3.x users like myself could get the same functionality by installing darwinports, and issuing the command as root:

# port install coreutils

and then of course using what is in

# /usr/local/bin/ps2ascii filepath.pdf #<-- CLI which ouputs pdf as ascii

For instructions on how to install darwinports, just visit, where there is a 10.3.x binary distribution available at

Hope this helps folks like myself that refuse to pay for 10.4.x.

Good luck.
