[pdftex] simple pdftype program?

Is there a simple program for pdf files which expands the binary parts
of PDF files?  Kind of like dvitype.  It would be even nicer if it
"interpreted" the PDF file the way dvitype does (showing the text being
typeset as well as it can, etc.).

>From searching freshmeat, I found a Java package which can do it, but I
don't have the right Java.

Also found a Perl package which can probably do it, but it's not clear,
and installing all the modules does not excite me.

Anyone know of other alternatives?  Just wondering ...
