I am using pdf-reader gem and trying to look for some content at some particular position on PDF. So what I am doing.. require 'rubygems' require 'pdf-reader' reader = PDF::Reader.new("general.pdf") page1=reader.page(1) page1_txt=page1.to_s In page1_txt I can see that Words or the blanks in PDF which is filled, are not in the order we expect looking at PDF. Why this happens? and how to take care of that, So I can be definite to say that s1 string can only be searched between s2 and s3. any other better gem to look for string in particular position in pdf?
