    I dont think you can do this yourself easily , extracting text from a pdf is a whole project by itself, Best adviced try a third party tool, we use ABCPDF which is available on i guess thats the website, its not very expensive as well but i am guessing it gives you html rather than text, you can parse and get the text out of it, better than nothing
