Yes, you can use packages such as PDF::API3 to “dumpster-dive” quite a ways into the “guts” of a PDF file, but if you can identify defects from the text content of the file, your ugly approach might be the most cost-effective.   The content of a PDF can be very beastly unpredictable, making it difficult to write reliable logic to track down problems.

And in appropriate status meetings, keep oh-so politely mentioning the o$t of the fact that this system is still not working as the business should have reason to expect.   Every hour spent ... opportunity costs ...

[stevieb]: In msg, how do I message someone with a space in their name. For example, I want to privately message "Your Mother", but am unsure of how to do so. Link/tips?
[pryrt]: In the link brackets...

[stevieb]: pryrt the brackets work in such a thing? I have nobody to test against. I will try :)
