Reformatting tends to require manual checking of line endings, chapter
headings and other kinds of issues, so gpdftext does the conversion but
also provides a simple text editor presentation as well as a choice of
output PDF sizes.

If gpdftext fits your needs, feel free to close the RFP for papercrop

Hi,

After a quick testing of gpdftext, it seems that it only extracts the text
from pdf files. However, I tend to use my reader to read papers with
mathematical formulas and figures, which papercrop handles quite well, and
are lost by gpdftext. So, gpdftext is far from being an equivalent of
papercrop and I think that both programs deserve a package in Debian!

Cheers,

Samuel.
