5NAME
6       pdfinfo - Portable Document Format (PDF) document information extractor
7       (version 4.00)

9SYNOPSIS
10       pdfinfo [options] [PDF-file]
11
12DESCRIPTION
13       Pdfinfo prints the contents of the 'Info' dictionary (plus  some  other
14       useful information) from a Portable Document Format (PDF) file.
15
16       The 'Info' dictionary contains the following values:
17
18              title
19              subject
20              keywords
21              author
22              creator
23              producer
24              creation date
25              modification date
26
27       In addition, the following information is printed:
28
29              tagged (yes/no)
30              form (AcroForm / static XFA / dynamic XFA / none)
31              page count
32              encrypted flag (yes/no)
33              print and copy permissions (if encrypted)
34              page size and rotation
35              file size
36              linearized (yes/no)
37              PDF version
38              metadata (only if requested)
39
40CONFIGURATION FILE
41       Pdfinfo  reads a configuration file at startup.  It first tries to find
42       the user's private config file, ~/.xpdfrc.  If that doesn't  exist,  it
43       looks  for  a  system-wide config file, typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
44       (but this location can be changed when  pdfinfo  is  built).   See  the
45       xpdfrc(5) man page for details.
46
47OPTIONS
48       Many  of  the following options can be set with configuration file com-
49       mands.  These are listed in square brackets with the description of the
50       corresponding command line option.
51
52       -f number
53              Specifies  the  first  page  to  examine.  If multiple pages are
54              requested using the "-f" and "-l"  options,  the  size  of  each
55              requested  page  (and,  optionally,  the bounding boxes for each
56              requested page) are printed.  Otherwise, only page one is  exam-
57              ined.
58
59       -l number
60              Specifies the last page to examine.
61
62       -box   Prints the page box bounding boxes: MediaBox, CropBox, BleedBox,
63              TrimBox, and ArtBox.
64
65       -meta  Prints document-level metadata.  (This is the "Metadata"  stream
66              from the PDF file's Catalog object.)
67
68       -rawdates
69              Prints  the  raw (undecoded) date strings, directly from the PDF
70              file.
71
72       -enc encoding-name
73              Sets the encoding to use for  text  output.   The  encoding-name
74              must  be  defined  with  the unicodeMap command (see xpdfrc(5)).
75              This defaults to "Latin1" (which is a built-in encoding).  [con-
76              fig file: textEncoding]
77
78       -opw password
79              Specify  the  owner  password  for the PDF file.  Providing this
80              will bypass all security restrictions.
81
82       -upw password
83              Specify the user password for the PDF file.
84
85       -cfg config-file
86              Read config-file in place of ~/.xpdfrc or the system-wide config
87              file.
88
89       -v     Print copyright and version information.
90
91       -h     Print usage information.  (-help and --help are equivalent.)
92
93EXIT CODES
94       The Xpdf tools use the following exit codes:
95
96       0      No error.
97
98       1      Error opening a PDF file.
99
100       2      Error opening an output file.
