What you can do is use the command pdf2ps (should install with  
Ghostscript if memory serves) to convert the PDF into PostScript.  
PostScript is plain text, so you can edit it with any text editor  
(vim, emacs, ee, nedit, pico/nano, etc.) or just use sed to change  
your line (sed 's/oldline/newline/g' > Then,  
when the new PostScript file has been created, just re-create the pdf  
with ps2pdf. I know this is not very elegant, but it works for small
