Hello everyone, I'm in the middle of a project so I need help pretty badly. For the past several days, I need to extract data from a PDF file through Perl. I've been using the command line (pdftotext.exe) for this but here's the big issue - there are a bunch of special characters in the PDF file that aren't being displayed correctly (adding extra spaces in the text file). Is there a better way to extract the data?
