You do not seem to understand what a .pdf file is. I do not now anything about the format, but I do know that in general the file does not contain text, but rather an image of your document. Extracting text from that image requires character recognition software. This is well beyond the capability of most perl programmers. You may find a module on CPAN that will help. I suspect that you will need commercial software to preprocess your file.
