No, Rev an do it so long as it's consistent. If the files aren't that
large, read them from disk into a variable as if it was a text file.
The title of the document may be in the text. For example, here's the
first part of one PDF (version 1.2) for the AportisDoc Reader:
1 0 obj
/Producer (Acrobat Distiller 3.01 for Power Macintosh)
/Subject (AprotisDoc Reader)
/Creator (Adobe PageMaker 6.52)
/Title (AportisDoc Reader)
/Author (Aportis Technologies Corp.)
I tested a bunch of PDFs, and they all had a /Title "property" that you
can search for, although some were plain (like the one above), and some
were encrypted, like the Read Me from QuickBooks:
/Title (u©–i˙Z∆C∫ïÒ-Ω÷ô O> J‚æÑJ‰ß„)
That might give you a start if they're all created in the same way...
