Need a PHP script to analize and extract (or parse) information from PDF files.
URL with the location of PDF would be an argument of parsing function.
It would return the extracted information, according to certain rules.
No need to show anything on screen, just process text on PDF file and write to a database or csv file.
So skills needed are PHP and regular expressions.

In the attachments I show a sample source file, and the expected output, in CSV format, for the first 4 paragraphs

I estimate workload needed is about 4 hours.
