in reply to Retrieve the PDF file description

Have you tried (in Acrobat Distiller 7) checking if the equivalent of doing this, as implied by marto - In the 'PDF Options' tab check the 'Tagged PDF' and 'Export Notes' options? In other words, there should be something in the help menu regarding something along the lines of tagging the pdf and notes about the pdf. My guess is that Acrobat Distiller 7 may not do one or both by default; you may have to check the option(s).

In addition, you might try the following:

  1. Look at the contents of the PDF object created:

    my $pdf = PDF->new("0001.pdf"); print Dumper($pdf);

  2. Setting the verbosity to 1, to see any other messages as to what the script is doing:
    $PDF::Verbose = 1;
