Extract Text by a Page Number Range


This REST API allows extracting text from specific pages only by setting pages range. You need to specify StartPageNumber and CountPagesToExtract parameters besides the basic options.


The following GroupDocs.Parser Cloud REST API resource has been used in the Extract text by a page number example.

cURL Example

The following example demonstrates how to extract text by a page number range.

# First get JSON Web Token
# Please get your Client Id and Client Secret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud/applications.
# Kindly place Client Id in "client_id" and Client Secret in "client_secret" argument.
curl -v "https://api.groupdocs.cloud/connect/token" \
-d "grant_type#client_credentials&client_id#xxxx&client_secret#xxxx" \
-H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
-H "Accept: application/json"
# cURL example to join several documents into one
curl -v "https://api.groupdocs.cloud/v1.0/parser/text" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Bearer 
<jwt token>" \
-d "{

Using an SDK (API client) is the quickest way for a developer to speed up the development. An SDK takes care of a lot of low-level details of making requests and handling responses and lets you focus on writing code specific to your particular project. Check out our GitHub repository for a complete list of GroupDocs.Parser Cloud SDKs along with working examples, to get you started in no time. Please check Available SDKs article to learn how to add an SDK to your project.
