    With python, there's always hope.
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfplayground

    In the CVS (sorry no distribution at the time) you'll find
    an example page-extract.
    http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/pdfplayground/ppg/Exp/page-extract.py?rev=1.1&view=markup

    pdfplayground is limited at the moment to PDF <= 1.4.
    If you want to do more with .pdfs you'll probably need at least
    a basic understanding of the PDF specification. pdfplayground
    is focused at low-level .pdf (by implementation resources...).

    Thomas Lotze is also preparing a pdf reader/writer project:
    http://svn.thomas-lotze.de/PDFSpec/

    So is David Boddie:

    Wishing a happy day
