Hello - I'm looking for a standalone search app that can search for text strings that are contained _within_ pdf files -- WITHOUT first opening the file. Adobe Reader can do this, but it's enormous -- like using an atom bomb to kill a fly. The app must be able to search independently of indexes created by Spotlight (as I do not maintain Spotlight on ANY of my computers -- I have reasons for doing so). There are other apps that can search for text within text (or other) files. One that comes to mind is "EasyFind". But it _can't_ find text that is contained _within_ a pdf file. What I will use this for: I have a folder containing hundreds of pdf files, and would like to search for text strings that exist in those files, without having to open each file individually. I want to point my search engine at the folder, type in a text string, and then have it identify those file(s) that contain the string. The text I'll be searching for _is_ "text" within the files -- not images, etc. When a file is opened, I can copy the text out "as text". But I have to find the files first! Anything out there (other than Acrobat Reader) that can do this?
