I needed to extract from PDF files the underlying text for my DocuMagic software (www.documagic.it) and found a fantastic DLL from Sorax software. You can download a working demo version of the DLL an the complete documentation from Sorax's site. Among other things, the DLL can display PDF files and can be called by Harbour.
BTW, still I did not implement the viewer, only the text extractor. I think it would be of great interest for all to share your experience, if you go that way. Give it a try, it's a nice piece of software, and it's cheap (ah... I forgot to say that it's not for free...).
