I'am new on PlanetPDF and I hope that my question is posted to the correct forum.

I'am involved in the development of the on-line, PDF version of scientific journal. Every article has a page with literature citations at the end. Citations need to be linked to the literature database. Every link can be automatically build as CGI-GET request using the citation in the article ( journal name, page volume and year ).

Do you know any program that can replace automatically the text in the article ( citation ) with the link to the database ?

Currently I'am doing it in the following way. The page with references is exported as plain text. The text is converted to HTML with PERL. During this conversion links are build. Then the page is imported to Acrobat via WebCapture as the last page of an article. As you can imagine this is very inefficient way so I'am looking for the tool that can do it directly in PDF.

Thanks for help in advance
