Class Program
    Friend Shared Sub Main(args As String())

        ' Create Bytescout.PDFExtractor.TextExtractor instance
        Dim extractor As New TextExtractor()
        extractor.RegistrationName = "demo"
        extractor.RegistrationKey = "demo"

        ' Load sample PDF document
        extractor.LoadDocumentFromFile("sample2.pdf")

        ' Get page count
        Dim pageCount As Integer = extractor.GetPageCount()

        For i As Integer = 0 To pageCount - 1
            Dim fileName As String = "page" & i & ".txt"

            ' Save extracted page text to file
            extractor.SavePageTextToFile(i, fileName)
        Next

        ' Open first output file in default associated application
        System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("page1.txt")
    End Sub
