      PDF::API2 is also quite useful for manipulating PDF's.

    Depending on your needs and experience with PDF, PDF::API2::Simple may prove to be a gentler introduction than PDF::API2.

    If you have time to play, you could also check out some of the other modules on CPAN that have good ratings or are recently updated/submitted/maintained: PDF mods on CPAN.

    Please feedback to the Monastery if any prove particularly good!

    Hope this helps,
