Searching PDFs on CD-ROM
Thread poster: Daina Jauntirans
I am hoping that someone can help me figure out how to (quickly) search PDFs on a CD-ROM. What I want to do is to burn CDs with reference information I have gathered from the Internet, often parallel documents (rather than word lists) in German and English, each in a separate PDF. Once I have them organized into subject-specific CDs, what is the best way to index the multiple files and search for a term? I would have to find the term in a German file and then find the equivalent in an English file.
I have used the old AltaVista search tool in the past, which has now been replaced with something new, I think, but never for searching a CD. I am currently just using the indexing and search tool that comes with Windows, but it is slow.
Thanks for any suggestions,
