How can I search text in PDF file? How to Search for Text Inside Multiple PDF Files at Once? Word and Phrase search in PDF Files

Hi,

I want a command line tool that will search a PDF for text and let me know if that text exists. This tool does that, right?

What if the text is an image? Can it search using OCR?

Please let me know. Thanks.
