you can also just do

pdf2swf -I test.pdf test.log

why don't you think it's not the right way?
that log gets written quite fast even on large pdf files.
and line by line parsing is always more efficient (memory-wise) than reading the full file at once.

I am using swftools for converting PDF to SWF. In my case, I need to know
number of pages and width/height of any page in PDF. Right now I execute
pdf2swf -I command and then parse its output line by line which I feel isn't
the right way specially for large files. Is there any other way of getting
this information?

One possible way could be getting this information in one line.

Would piping the output information to file be a possible option?  As in,

  pdf2swf -I test.pdf > pagelist

Surely multiple lines are preferable to one long jam packed string?
Not that you couldn't remove the LF(CR) and
replace with another separator if you really wanted to.
