The poppler utils make use of the internal poppler API to the poppler
library to perform their function. Poppler also provides various
stable API bindings that can be used instead:
* glib (GLib/C) -- http://cgit.freedesktop.org/poppler/poppler/tree/glib
* cpp (C++) -- http://cgit.freedesktop.org/poppler/poppler/tree/cpp
* qt4 (Qt4/C++) -- http://cgit.freedesktop.org/poppler/poppler/tree/qt4
See the demo/tests folder for example usage.
