Yes, that's what you said in your first post. I was hoping you could elaborate on what exactly you're trying to do.

What do you mean read? Do you want to display a PDF? Do you want to parse the contents of the PDF in to a plain text format? Do you want to allow someone to upload a PDF?

What do you mean display pdf file? The visitors web browser will display the pdf file for them. All you would need is to have links to the pdf file(s) for the user to load the pdf file.

Hi

You have all discussed about the pdf.

i need to know how to parse a pdf file using php. That means i want to read the pdf file and store the data into mysql db, so that when anybody search for a particular content that related pdf will be provided.

I am not asking about the code here please give guidance or suggestion where to start and implement.

Thanks and regards,
Dharprog

I would like to open pdf files with Adobe Reader. Users could then
store the file on their pc if desired as the files tend to be large.
How do I go about opening files with Adobe Reader?

Thx.

You just have to place a link to the pdf file.

<a href = "file.pdf">link to file</a>

If the user has Acrobat installed the file will then open in it automaticly.
