File formats like Microsoft Word DOC or PDF are used to create documents that may contain text and other types of document elements.

Parsing and extracting the document elements from files in those formats, usually is not a trivial task. However, if you just want to extract the text in the document, simpler approaches may be used.

This class can extract text from PDF document files as well Microsoft Word files, including the older versions that use a binary file format.
