First make sure that the PDF contains the text (the output of an OCR), AND
especially that the text is in the correct order (e.g. if a book or
magazine has multiple columns of text, the OCR and/or the PDF encoder
could be alternating between the columns instead of finishing the 1st
column before going to the 2nd). Then after that, you could paste in a
plain text editor and correct the formatting to fit that of a DECB ASCII
basic file (no blank lines, no spaces before line numbers, etc). Then you
use a converter of newlines to make them CR (aka 0D, aka MacOS Classic).
You save that as .BAS and you use dwtools to put that on a disk image
loadable by your emulator.
