There's a new PDF tool reviewed at:


Among the features of pdftk is the ability to fill out PDF forms from
the command line.

The above article also references a GUI front end to pdftk. I have no
notion whether the particular gui tool is also accessible, but the fact
that one can devise a graphical front end certainly suggests that one
might also be able to make an accessible front end for pdftk.

This tool looks worthy to me, worthy of additional exploration because
it performs functions otherwise not available on Linux/Unix platforms.
