AFAI can tell... (from a quick google search), there is only a commercial
product that can "read" PDF... i.e. PageCatcher from
ReportLabs.http://www.reportlab.org/devfaq.html
(look at item 2.1.5) <http://www.reportlab.org/devfaq.html>

BTW, an apparently, non platform-neutral way may be described here:

Alternatively, you could always use tools like "pdf2txt" to convert PDF into
text, and then read it in, however, as you could guess, you completely miss
out on the graphics (i.e. images), and the formatting aspects.
