Which PDF readers allow blocking and cut-&-paste?

Also, which allow searching for text and phrases?

xpdf allows cut and paste.  It feels funny because it is a
pixel-wise block, but it works.

For searching, it might be enough to use pdftotext | grep <string>
I don't know which other ones allow searching.


Ok, I take that back ... xpdf has a search button.




Acroread also does both.  But it is non-free.
