    Software to break a PDF file from the command line

    We are looking for a Windows based software which, from a command line, burst a PDF file into the page or document.

    Example, a PDF file containing 5 pages, with bookmark PAGE1, PAGE2, PAGE3, PAGE4 and PAGE5.

    We would like the software via the command line (ie without interface) can generate PAGE1.pdf, PAGE2.pdf ...

    Also, is it possible to highlight the index in a PDF to a text file?

    Here is the code:

    Code:
    public static void parsePage1(String[][] tab)
          throws IOException
        {
         Runtime myRuntime = Runtime.getRuntime();
         Process myProcess;
         File file = new File("C:\\" );
     
         for(int i=0; i<tab.length; i++)
         {
          file = new File("SOURCE_PATH\\"+tab[i][0]+"_"+tab[i][1]+"_"+tab[i][2]+"_"+tab[i][3]+".pdf" );
          myProcess = myRuntime.exec("java -jar \"C:\\Program Files\\pdfsam\\lib\\pdfsam-console-0.7.3.jar\" -f \""+file.getPath()+"\" -o DESTINATION_PATH -s BURST -compressed split" );
          try
          {
           myProcess.waitFor();
          }
          catch (InterruptedException ie)
          {
           ie.printStackTrace();
          }
          file.delete();
          file = new File("DESTINATION_PATH\\1_"+tab[i][0]+"_"+tab[i][1]+"_"+tab[i][2]+"_"+tab[i][3]+".pdf" );
          file.renameTo(new File("DESTINATION_PATH\\"+tab[i][0]+"_"+tab[i][1]+"_"+tab[i][2]+"_"+tab[i][3]+".pdf" ));
          file = new File("DESTINATION_PATH\\2_"+tab[i][0]+"_"+tab[i][1]+"_"+tab[i][2]+"_"+tab[i][3]+".pdf" );
          file.delete();
          myProcess.destroy();
         }
        }
