Reading parsed content from PDF or DOC files

I am trying to read the content in a particular file that has been uploaded into Alfresco. I understand that the text from DOC and PDF files is parsed and stored by Alfresco via Lucene.
So for this I would like to know or have some sample code on how to get content on a particular file uploaded to Alfresco. For this I am looking at using the Content Retrieval CMIS webscript provided OOTB.
However, I feel there is not enough documentation around the parameters that need to be passed in. I can read the parameters but there is no enough description on what those values would or should be. A sample call to this web script would really be useful to compensate the lack of enough documentation.

Also, I would like to know what are the other web scripts or any other ways that would allow me to read the actual content on a node.
