[Chicago-talk] Reading PDF files

Can anyone tell me if there are good modules for
reading PDF files?  I am thinking that there should be
a way to get output from a PDF file like LWP when
getting a webpage. From there I could extract data
using regex.  Or better yet if there are also modules
that would work on a PDF and put data in table
formats, something like the results from 

I have looked on CPAN for PDF::stuff and it none of it
seems to do the above.  There were things more like
creating PDF files or copying several pages to a new
PDF file.

Any help appreciated.
