hello smart folks.  i have a pdf file that is some 350 pages.  and i need
to search for one phrase.  gv doesnt seem to have a search function, i've
tried ps2ascii and pstotext after converting the pdf with pdf2ps.  the
resulting txt files just have a bunch of ^L over and over.  I'm stumped.
how do i search for a phrase in a pdf file?

thanks for any help from a forum that's not really about pdf.
