parsing text from a pdf

OK, so not sure this is really an AS query but is there anyway of parsing text from a pdf? I have a big bunch of them and ideally would like to write a script which extracts the title etc of each document and then renames and sorts them accordingly.



Apple’s Preview doesn’t have an Applescript dictionary, so you’d have to use Adobe’s Acrobat Reader. Worse, I believe (and someone here will likely correct me if I am wrong) that the free version of Reader has no dictionary (or so small it’s useless). Which means you’ll need to buy the Pro version to do any real scripting.
