If you are familiar with PostScript, look out for an operator
"pdfmark" which allows you to move information to PDF files.

See

but you'll find much more if you google for "pdfmark".

Sorry, the last sentence might sound a bit funny, but curiously in
German we have the (probably unofficial) word "googeln", which means
"to google".  That's awful.
