    [RESOLVED] Extracting time stamps from pdf

    Hi, I am trying to automatically extract all time stamps in a pdf file. These are typically in a line like:

    when="2010-07-30T15:20:30+04:00"

    For this I was thinking of using CStdioFile and the ReadString function. Somehow this doesn't work. My example code is below. Is this because pdf is not a true text file, because strings read can be longer than some max,...? What is my mistake or anyone have another quick way of reading the file and extracting the desired text between the brackets?

    Code:
    CStdioFile InputFile;
    
    if (InputFile.Open(FileName,CFile::modeRead))
    {
     CString Line; CString ToFind; ToFind.Format("when");
    	 
     while (InputFile.ReadString(Line))
     {
      if (Line.Find(ToFind)!=-1)
      {
       CString Item; AfxExtractSubString(Item,Line,0,'"'); 
       AfxMessageBox(Item); // to be replaced with further processing
      }
     }
    
     InputFile.Close();
    }
