First you have to read carefully PDF file specifications, you may find it here Adobe - PDF Developer Center: PDF reference, then read file metadata & scrap the actual text according to the file's spec.

The problem is in understanding the pdf file structure after recognizing the metadata the rest is as reading normal text files.
