form fields in PDF – how to retrieve their details?

This command line shows you a few details:

$ pdftk … dump_data_fields

Not enough details for me.

What about CAM::PDF?
It comes with a couple of nice sample utilities (the bin/ subdirectory), one of them is called listpdffields.pl . It also does not show me enough details, but I think I will enhance that one.

Update / 2010-12-11:
Yes, CAM::PDF works very well for me. I wrote another article on that.
