I have a project using Rails where I'm trying to read and modify pdf 
files. it has been a very frustrating search to find the right libraries 
to use for the project.
Specifically, my client want the site to allow a user to enter text on a 
form, and then have that text inserted into an existing pdf file. I was 
wondering if I could use poppler to read the pdf file and then use cairo 
to modify it and write it back out. I am wondering if anyone has any 
examples of ruby code using poppler.
