Which software published a PDF?

Hello all,

I am trying to determine what the original source for a PDF is (actually a bunch of PDFs).

For instance, a PDF can be created by Adobe FrameMaker, Indesign, PDF Publisher, Microsoft Word,  MadCap Flare, Microsoft Visio, and any thousands of other publishing tools.

Ideally, I am looking for a tool that will scan and indicate various information (especially the original tool) about PDFs.

Thank you

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
