PDF to HTML or DOC conversion?

I'm looking for free ways to convert a PDF file to HTML or MS Word format. I've got a large PDF file that is mostly text with a few graphics, and I want to get it onto my Palm Tungsten E. I tried Adobe Acrobat Reader for the Palm, but the resulting document crashes the reader. So, I want to try to convert it to HTML or DOC format.

Any suggestions? I'm open to Aqua or unix command line solutions.

well, you can email it to pdf2txt@adobe.com and wait a couple hours for the plain text to coame back. If you need the pictures, install pdf toolkit and use the unpack_files option. I don't see that pdf toolkit does text extraction, though.

You may want to read the man page for "textutil".
That can convert text between pdf, rtf, txt, html and doc formats.

Getting the pictures out may be trickier.

Depending on how the file was created, you may be able to select all the text in Preview and copy/paste it into your word processor.

Hmm... 4 1/2 year old thread!

Well, did you try to open the PDF file and save as HTML? Or you may try other page flip software to convert PDF to HTML or DoC. I use 3dpageflip software to transform the formats. Maybe you can have a try.
