Can't get rid of tabs and white space from a string php


I have tried just about every trick in the book, and the white space and tabs persist

I ran 'Recognize Text' in Adobe Acrobat to convert an image into a pdf where I could grab the text.

The text comes in, but there is a lot of what 'looks' like white space and tabs, but all the usual tricks won't get rid of them:

 $ltxt1 = str_replace("\x0B","",str_replace("\0","",str_replace(",","",str_replace(" ","",str_replace("\t","",str_replace("\n","~",$text))))));


$ltxt = preg_replace('/\s+/', '', $ltxt1);

There is some issue related to the way I made the text renderable on the face of the pdf doc is my guess

My Answer:
I help you with something specific?
