Topic: Separate pages and extract some text

I need to develop a solution for the following problem, but since I am kind of new to working with pdf files, I need suggestions. This will be an automated background process which will run 24/7. We start with a 1000 page pdf document of invoices, which will be dropped into a work directory as required. The process will need to break this up into 1000 separate pages/invoices. Then we will need to extract some data from the invoices. A text data file for each invoice will be written which will contain the extracted invoice number, date, client name, items, etc. for each invoice. It would be preferred if this could be done with one C program for instance. Will it have to be done with separate processes? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
