Sorry for the late response.  I wrote a little script some time ago
which extracts fonts from PDF files and disassembles them.  It is
required that you have pdftops (part if xpdf) and the t1utils

It simply converts PDF files to PostScript and runs t1disasm on each

If you run "xtractfonts foo.pdf" you'll get a directory called
"FONTS_foo.pdf" which contains the fonts as .pfa and .src files.
You might be only interested in the .src files.

However, I wrote this script for myself and you probably are not able
to extract some fonts because the regular expression which is supposed
to match /FontName does not support everey character which is allowed
in /FontName yet.

xtractfonts can be downloaded from:

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