    Sorry for the stupid question. I downloaded the .36 version and was trying to run it to test out a PDF to HTML.
    How do you run this program?
    I am on Win XP Pro.
    I tried from the Run command and it did not work.
    Help please.

      Open a Dos Prompt or command window

      Go to the directory with the executable init

      type the name of the executable and press enter

      you'll get a list of options/parameters that you can run with the program.

      I think a simple example is

      pdftohtml -c "nameofpdf.pdf"

      : warning: the use of `tmpnam' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'
      make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/sean/pdftohtml/pdftohtml-0.36/src'
      cd src; mv pdftohtml ../pdftohtml

      is it the factor that causes i could't run it?? and i cannot find "pdftohtml" the way thanks for your reply

        You have to specify full path to the pdftohtml executable when you run it. Like this:
        /home/kinliang/work/pdftohtml-0.36/pdftohtml file.pdf
