Parse PDF files with Python

Parse PDF files with Python: "PDFMiner is a suite of programs that help extracting some meaningful information out of PDF documents. Unlike other PDF-related tools, it focuses entirely on getting and analyzing text data from PDFs. PDFMiner allows to obtain the exact location of texts in a page, as well as other extra information such as font information or ruled lines. It includes a PDF converter that can transform PDF files into other text formats (such as HTML). It has an extensible PDF parser that can be used for other purposes instead of text analysis."
