Hi ,
Sorry my previous mail was not formatted correctly due to tables , so I
have given links to google docs .

I am using pdftotext version 0.24.2 . Following is my case


While extracting using the following command line utility

pdftotext table.pdf table.txt  -layout -nopgbrk -q

I am getting the following output


So what I want is ,  if there in no bullet in any of the line then there
should be empty line in opposite column , could you please tell me what to
change in the code so that I could get an output similar to this


Or at least  which part of the code has to be modified to achieve the above

Thanks in advance

With Regards
Nishanth R Lawrence
