On the Adobe web site you'll find the full specifications for the
PDF format. I can send it to you, if you don't want to search for
it. However, as I said, parsing a PDF file is harder than creating
one, because you'll have to deal with all possibilities
(compression, encryption, linearized format...); of course, this
does not mean it is impossible.
