To read and manage Portable Document Files you can use the open source ReportLab toolkit (written in Python) from:

If you have a PC with Windows, you can use wxPython to read PDF files, check:

2.1.5 Does ReportLab support reading PDFs?

No, the Open Source package doesn't do this.

That's what our commercial PageCatcher product does.
