PDFText plugin and the pdftotext utility

Does the new 2.0 version of PdfText plugin rely on the pdftotext command line utility that the pdfsearch plugin uses? I understand that my host provider would have to install the pdftotext utility in order to use the pdfsearch plugin. Does the PdfText plugin work without the the need for the pdftotext command line utility?

Does anyone know of a site that uses the pdfsearch plugin to search the contents of a pdf and then display the original document? I read a lot of posts, but have not come across a sample of how the plugin can be used.


Yes, PdfText relies on the pdftotext command line utility. It won't work if it is not installed on the server.
