in reply to PDF Modules Seeking Recommendations

It's not part of CPAN, but on the recommendations of several monks, I had a lot of success using pdftotext, part of the XPDF open source project. It allows you to extract text from pdf to an ascii format,

Your mileage may vary, of course, depending on what you want/need to do, but if you are doing text extractions, I heartily recommend pdftotext.
