The service provides analysis and data extraction from a number of popular application file types, including PDF and Microsoft Office applications Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. It also extracts text or other data from scanned documents.
API methods support uploading a source document file in one of the recognized formats along with specifications of the data to be exported. In addition to PDF and MS Office formats, methods can process OpenOffice and WordPerfect documents, text files, .rtf files, and a number of common image file formats. Requests also specify the source document language and MIME type, desired output template, and other technical parameters. Methods generate output in the desired output, such as html for web display.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
