I have been working with a program called IrScrutinizer for some time. It can import sets of IR signals in several different formats, and translate them to most of the popular formats. The problem is that the input must be in a structured, machine readable format, for example CSV, or text with some structure. The problem with your PDF files that you referred to in the other post is that there is basically no way to systematically extract information from it. If you copy it to the clipboard and paste to a text editor you get the words in, essentially, random order. It is surely possible, with considerable manual effort, to enter the data into, for example, Excel. But it is not really that different from typing in the whole thing again. Note that the PDF format (at least as I see it) is a format that is intended to discourage further processing of the content... Of course, it may be possible to run the file through an OCR processor...

Do you have any other suggestions?
