Yes, thank you.  But I have to provide the stream object number,
though the usage message says that it's optional.

  pdftosrc version 2.01
  Usage: pdftosrc <PDF-file> [<stream-object-number>]

Without the object number I get:

  pdftosrc version 2.01
  No SourceObject found

I suppose that it should be optional. If it is omitted, pdftosrc
should behave as if stream-object-number is 0.  In this case 
it should look for /SourceFile.  But srcStream.isStream("SourceFile")
is always 0. (pdftosrc.cc, line 85)

And probably a little typo should be fixed:

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
