Convert PDF to CSV Tables in Tact - 6 views

  • Tabula really is a wonderful tool for extracting data from tables in PDFs. It’s a locally hosted web app that allows you to Select one or more PDFs with the data you want. Identify the area of the page from which to extract the data. Save the data in CSV, TSV, or JSON format. I gave Tabula a try on the same PDF tables I wrote about last night, and it worked perfectly. You may recall that I didn’t like the column headings in the original table. Well, Tabula let me drag a rectangle to select just the data portion of the table, leaving the stuff I didn’t want out of the extracted CSV file.

Will $99 Moby tablet swim or sink? | eSchoolNews.com - 35 views

  • In Turkey we are about to start 1 to 1 netbook for 15.000.000 students with $ 7 per month installments for 36 months through credit cards. I knew technology would change until we complete to provide 15.000.000 netbooks. So I will write to Marvel. We can finance them, we can buy the first 1.000.000 netbooks at $ 120 per piece. I hope quality and functions are as they say . Hurra, education complainers. It is time to go online courses for 60 million USA K12 students. You have no excuse now.
  • We have dealt with Tablet PC before in one of our Smart School initiatives here in Malaysian and I must say the Moby Tablet is quite impressive.
