Iceni Technology Argus v6.2.00 | 46.52 MB
Argus comes with a variety of example configurations covering most of the capabilities of the software. Useful in their own right they also serve as a convenient starting point for creating your own configurations.
Argus is a very powerful and flexible PDF document conversion and extraction tool. It is controlled via configuration files. A number of common applications of Argus are described in the tables below. For each type of conversion/extraction application the appropriate configuration file(s) are identified with a brief description of each. Each configuration file path is also a link to page which gives more detailed information: sample input and output data, the command line used to produce the output and information regarding important config file settings that you are most likely to want to modify. These descriptions and configuration files are by no means a comprehensive list of what Argus can do; they just serve as templates so that it should not be neccessary to write a configuration file from scratch.Features

Argus allows you to re-configure every aspect of the PDF conversion down to the level of individual tags, line-breaks and analysis behaviour. This means that it is possible to generate text output in almost any format you require whether it be a proprietary tagging scheme of your own or a standard markup language.
The package includes an extensive set of pre-configured schemes including:
configurations for text, HTML and RTF that re-flow the output
HTML and RTF configurations for preserving layout
"tabtext" configuration designed for accurate export of tabular data such as stock market reports, inventories and invoices
"gridText" configuration for retaining layout in plain text output
article thread export configurations
image export and page rendering configurations
Software Development Kit - "SDK"
Argus includes a SDK with support for C, C++ and Visual Basic. Using the SDK, the full power of Argus can be seamlessly incorporated into your own Visual Basic applications and "C/C++" programs.
In fact, any application requiring the ability to convert or render PDF documents can be rapidly developed using the simple API provided by the SDK.Home Page
