accesing pages (or ranges of pages) via Reportlab

Hi, I've been using pdflatex to dump ranges of pages from a PDF file via
Python. However, I was looking at the Reportlab toolkit and was wondering
if this operation would be possible using this toolkit as well.

Admittedly, I have'nt read the documentation in detail, but I was
wondering if anybody could provide any pointers to extracting pages from a
PDF via Python without using pdflatex

Thanks,
Rajarshi

I'm pretty sure there is a non-free library available
from the ReportLab folks that can do this. (Googling
a bit...) PageCatcher. Check www.reportlab.com for more.

ReportLab doesn't support this in the free version but they sell
an add-on called PageCatcher that has this feature. I've used
it on a couple of projects and it works EXTREMELY well.
