reading form data from pdf forms

Vijayan Padmanabhan
Dear R-Help group
Is there any way that I can programmatically extract form field values from
a pdf form (either saved as pdf or fdf) in R?
I would wish to not be dependent on any Paid tool for this purpose.
Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Regards
VP

I don't know if there's a pure R option, but i believe pdftk can extract
the form data which you can then manipulate in R.
