Yes, the bsdl gives you the pin names and number.

If your program is smart enough to get the table entries, then you 
don't need the bsdl file. Getting the pin names from the pdf table
isn't that hard, the alternate names though, isn't lined up nicely
with the pin number, so you must use some heuristics to tell if this item belongs to the line above or below.

E.g. if the above is "-" then the name probably belongs to
line below. If the string in the cell ends with "/", then it is an
indication the something will follow and it belongs to the cell below.
