You never, I placed it here because you are not getting another Topic out of that question.
You could of just left it in the new thread and responded:
The information in your response would have been at the same level of information in the question.
@DosCode, I still would be interested in seeing your COMPLETE solution, since you say you have one, including reading the link you provided, downloading the pages, finding the pdf file names and links, downloading the pdf files if you hadn't already in an earlier step, then moving and renaming the pdf files as you wished and getting rid of any extra stuff downloaded that you no longer needed. I'm always interested in learning new CMD script tricks and I've learned they can come from unlikely sources. So, will you share?
As to your "get text from pdf document using script?" question, you will obviously need to be a lot more descriptive. As I tried to explain earlier, there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to learn how to do a task using CMD script if that is what you really want to do. And we are happy to explain how to do specific tasks. But if you will lay out your complete task you are trying to accomplish we can help guide you in how to break up the task into manageable pieces. If you don't want an alternate solution, fine. Just ignore any that are offered, AFTER politely thanking the provider EACH TIME, not just expecting one single "thanks to all posters" to cover things. If you only want conformation that you are on the right track as to the way you have broken the task down, then we will try to refrain from giving you the complete solution at once and only answer the specific questions you ask and only give you examples and not working code so that you can learn on your own, as you seem to want to do. The problem is that when jaclaz tried to do that very thing, you complained that his code didn't work when you clicked on it. And when others offered solutions they were either ignored, brushed off because they weren't using CMD script, or complained to because they didn't give the output you wanted (even though you didn't explain what that was ahead of time).
Most people who come here looking for help want to accomplish a given task. Some want a complete turnkey solution so that they don't have to do the work themselves, and some of those don't care how it works, just that it works. And that is sad. Hopefully they at least say thanks, and most do.
Apparently you are more interested in learning how rather than the speed of getting to the solution, and that is admirable. But if that is the case, you will need to:
Layout the complete task
Provide the type of input data you will be dealing with
Describe the output you wish - exactly - and sometimes even say why
Describe the steps you want to learn how to do in order to get from input to output
Then for each step you want to learn how to do, provide the code you have attempted to write and we will try to help you with it.
But if we tell you that you could get from input to output using different steps than what you have chosen, please at least listen to us. We'll try not to suggest (too often) using a different scripting language, but we might know a better path to take to get from A to B.
Anyone who has ever been a true student knows that that if they really want to learn they will have to listen, and yes question what they are told, and do a whole lot more work than the teacher.
I ask you - if you "have many bad habits and in my country we say "You cannot learn an old dog dancing!"." - then why did you come here if not to learn something? I'm afraid that most of us have our own habits including how we want to teach someone how to do something. If our methods and yours don't get along for any reason, then you are encouraged to go elsewhere and find someone who can better meet your needs. We won't try to change you if you don't try and change us.
Cheers and Regards
