How to programmatically save off all PDF files from PDF Package?

How do I programmatically (C# or C++) extract all PDF files from PDF Package and save them off to a folder? Also, some PDF files might have other PDF attachments that have to be moved to the same folder.
Please, need your expert help.

PDF Packages (or Portfolios) are just fancy file attachments - you can use the same routines that you would use to extract a file attachment from a PDF file.

Take a look at iTextSharp (http://itextsharp.sourceforge.net/). For sample code about how to actually process attachments, take a look at the source of pdftk (http://www.accesspdf.com/pdftk/). You can also look at the iTextToolbox, which also contains a code to extract attachments: https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=194031

To recursively process attachments, you just need to call your extract method again on every extracted file until you can no longer find attachments.
