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
S Connelly
