Hi,
I want to read a PDF file as a stream(since its very big) and then filter out the contents based upon some matching string to create another new PDF file. Any pointers as to how to achieve it? I am pretty new for PDF api's, so can anyone help me out in this?API's from any free stuff like from sourceforge would do!

Thanks in advance,
Adwitiya Nigam...

There are several 3rd party offerings out there, though not all are free. iText is on sourceforge:

You should be able to search around for others that may or may not be more suited to what you need...
