Along with imagemagick, grep, a pinch of bash, and a part list - I am using Tesseract to automatically index ~10,000 pages of pdf's containing vector drawings with vector drawn part number text, resulting in a mysqldump ready for import!
It might not be very efficient but it works and it won't cost a penny! FOSS pwnz.
