Project Description

Hello. I need a script (Preferably PHP but otherwise .NET or whichever language would best suit this application.

A website will then be built to work with and around this script.

The script needs to be able to prompt for and accept an upload of readable PDF files which are locked to edit. The text from the PDF needs to then be able filter out certain variable strings of text which follow consistent, fixed headings on the PDFs.

The PDFs are always the same journal, and are published monthly. They always have the same 4 Headings, such as: "WEEK OF:", and a sentence of data following the "WEEK OF:" title needs to be extracted to the MySQL database.

The script would need to function as a basic website, and not need any impressive layout or graphics at this stage.

The basic workings should be like the site, [url removed, login to view] but with the ability to enter via the front end webpage, the filter parameters to be able to keep only specific parts of the PDF.
