You find the text and then paint an highlight over the coordinates the text

Output != Reading, so no, obviously TextOutputDev.h has nothing to do with 
reading text files.

The qt4, cpp and glib frontends have functions named Poppler::Page::search, 
poppler::page::search and poppler_page_find_text, makes me wonder if you 
actually bothered to read the documentation?
