PdfParser is a standalone PHP library that provides various tools for extracting data from PDF files. It loads and parses objects and headers, extracts meta data, and extracts text from ordered pages. It supports compressed PDF, MAC OS Roman charset encoding, hex and octal encoding in text sections, and is compliant with PSR-0 (autoloader) and PSR-1 (code styling). Currently, secured documents are not supported.
