         PoDoFo (in which I am also involved) is a different type of 
library than Poppler.  While Poppler is also about READING PDFs and 
working with their contents - PoDoFo is about PDF creation and 
manipulation.   Like the differences between JPEDAL & iText in the Java worlds.

         That's one I wasn't familiar with - thanks for the link!
