With a custom callback-handler, you can get the text out ouf your PDF
and into your application. That is as long as you need no fancy stuff
such as rotated text, images, colors, etc. - rpdf2txt is very
text-centered at the moment.

I've attached an example how this might be done. Caveat: you'll need the
newest version of rpdf2txt (v. 1.0.4) - I found a couple of issues while
writing this example..
