    PDF contents == how to copy to clipboard or edit

    Hello, I have a PDF of some data (mainly text, and text is all I care about). I need to get a copy of 10-12 pages of that contents. I know that under Windows, I can install Adobe Acrobat and edit them that way, but how could I accomplish the same under Linux? I have toyed with xpdf, gnome pdf's viewer, kde's, and soforth. I would assume that someone here has had to deal with this thus far.

    Thanks!
