I have bunch of data in .PMD file (Page Maker Document). Which contains mathematical equations and chemistry formulas, I am a .NET developer, and I am writing code for one of the educational learning system. For that I need to read and store mathematical equations/ chemistry formulas from .PMD file into database then display on the browser page.
Is it possible to read data from .PMD file using C#.NET, do I need to use any external libraries. How can I import .PMD to MATHML (Mathematical Markup language)?
Any existing examples for C#.NET?
Please help me regarding this.
I should say there is not a chance of this.
The PMD format is proprietary. There is a PageMaker SDK but I imagine it is long discontinued. It was used to write plugins in C so far as I know.
I can't claim to know much about visual C# Net, but I do know a bit about pagemaker. It really can't handle equations. there are a few work arounds involving things like baseline shifts and multiple text boxes, but generally equations were created in different programs and placed in pagemaker in picture or eps files. Either way the chances of extracting usable data out of pagemaker is very slim.
