I am looking to automate the parsing of hundreds of PDF Forms into XML and then do some basic validation. The preferred method would be to drop all of the PDF's into a folder, run a script, and then the PDF's would go to their corresponding directory based on a XML validation test (easy to do once I get the PDF form into XML).
Now, I have googled all around the web looking for plug ins, scripts, or anything that might accomplish this. Everything that might have a chance of working seems very elaborate and expensive.
Can anyone recommend plausible, cheap, and quick course of action? Also, the machines that these files are on are very locked down with security, if that impacts your feedback.
