My friend,
You already have converter on your computer:-) Ghostscript!
Just type pdf2ps filename.pdf and then you can convert ps to ascii i 
with the command ps2ascii.
If I remember well you can convert pdf directly to ascii but I forgot 
how. I think something like pdftoacsii or pdf2ascii

In any case the software you want is not among converters but rather it 
is in print. (ghostscript and I think dvips is useful to have) .
There was a thread about 3 months ago when we went systematically over 
all converters.

Just look the archive.
