    can I write the content of a pdf-file in a coldfusion Variable?

    Malvina Level 1
      I have a question evaluating pdf-files.

      Is it possible to get a pdf-file into a Coldfusion variable to evaluate the content e.g. with a Regex, to extract some Information as a string to store this in a Database.

      I have to evaluate lots of pdf-files, which have specific strings in it.
      I have to find these strings and check against a database whether they are already present in the database.

      I have seen, that i can evaluate the properties of the pdf-file with <cfpdf action: "read">. But I I do not understand how to get the body of the pdf-file into a variable.

      Any hint is highly appreciuated!
