How can I build libpoppler from source?

Issue

I just download poppler to Linux system,and I want to incorporate it in my app to parse pdf file.
(My goal is to convert pdf file to plain text.)
How can I do this?

Solution

Their website explains it very clearly :

Poppler is available from git. To clone the repository use the following command:

git clone git://git.freedesktop.org/git/poppler/poppler

Once you download the source code, read the INSTALL file where it says :

  1. cd to the directory containing the package’s source code and type
    ./configure to configure the package for your system.

  2. Type `make’ to compile the package.

  3. Type `make install’ to install the programs and any data files and
    documentation.
