Does anyone know of a PHP function for extracting data (text) from a PDF file? I know I can generate a PDF, but is there a way to extract from an existing PDF file?

Thanks Shocker .. I will check that out .. I also found this script by a fellow PHPer that may come in handy too. Thought I would share it:
