Online wordcount tool now supports PDF files

20/05/08 7:37 AM

I’ve added support for PDF files to my online wordcount tool. Now the tool can provide word counts for PDF files using the pyPdf library.

Addendum: I’ve replaced pyPdf with another pure-python library, pdfminer, which is much more robust at handling PDF files.

    Hi Rainer:

    Unfortunately, I had to take it offline because some abusive users were overloading my server (this is why we can’t have nice things…). I will bring it back online when I have time to implement IP blocking.
