If you are interested in "pdf portfolios" i.e. pdfs with attached files, pdfdetach can extract them. But mutool can do that and also attach them in the first place.

Origami-pdf is another tool that may be worth mentioning, although it is in ruby, and I'm not sure if it is currently being developed anywhere:
Quote:
Features
•Create PDF documents from scratch.
•Parse existing documents, modify them and recompile them.
•Explore documents at the object level, going deep into the document structure, uncompressing PDF object streams and desobfuscating names and strings.
•High-level operations, such as encryption/decryption, signature, file attachments...
•A GTK interface to quickly browse into the document contents.

There is a similar python project that seems to be dead.https://github.com/jesparza/peepdf
And a Java one that is alive https://github.com/itext/rups/

Since I'm recording my most important knowledge about pdfs in this thread:

Qpdf is the best option if you need to remove restrictions (e.g. can't print, can't edit, or can't copy text) from pdfs, which in most cases doesn't require a password. N.B. this doesn't help if you have a pdf where the text has not been encoding according to the standard characterset (which was a problem using the old "cups-pdf" virtual printer in Puppy i.e. copied text was gibberish because the characters in the pdf had all been randomly remapped).

Pdfshuffler users may want to note that the version some have treated as an unofficial upstream has now forked as pdfarranger, I guess because there has been a little activity on the original upstream lately.
