Any software to search keywords inside documents

Hello,
Community

I know the following question is going be stupid but i need confirm my theory and other world to prove my boss there is no type of software out there can do this.

My boss said there is a software out there that can read inside of doc and PDF to look for keywords etc.

to my knowledge there no type of software out there that can do that yet.

so my question is ?

Is there a software out there that can read inside of doc and pdfs for keywords ?

Thank you for reading

Have you never done a system search using keywords before?,the software is normally built into the operating system search engine.

There is of course other software that also uses search and read software built into anti virus and firewall applications that can scan all files for potential threats and if you do not send encrypted data any recorded data can be collected and scanned for keywords by the powers that be and keywords are flags for further investigation.The software is out there and used all the time in different guises,hope you did`nt bet any money with him .
I believe that MS Office has a search companion and Open Office can do anything MS can and better as it reads .XML and PDF extensions either by extension,name or keyword.

If you want a free solution checkout document management programmes at sourceforge.net or just Google document management systems or data management systems depending on your requirements.
