I have a service manual library on CD for my car. When I open it
there are a dozen files for the .exe to play with then there is a
folder labeled PDF. In it are about fifty PDF's all label 10001 and
on. Once I open them everything works like it should. I had to open
each one at a time and create a table of contents for myself since
20004.pdf isn't very informative. I don't think there is a way to
search the files without opening them in xpdf, acrobat or in my case
