NAME
pdfdetach - Portable Document Format (PDF) document embedded file extractor (version 3.03) SYNOPSIS
pdfdetach [options] [PDF-file] DESCRIPTION
Pdfdetach lists or extracts embedded files (attachments) from a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. CONFIGURATION FILE
Pdfdetach reads a configuration file at startup. It first tries to find the user's private config file, ~/.xpdfrc. If that doesn't exist, it looks for a system-wide config file, typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc (but this location can be changed when pdfinfo is built). See the xpdfrc(5) man page for details. OPTIONS
Some of the following options can be set with configuration file commands. These are listed in square brackets with the description of the corresponding command line option. -list List all of the embedded files in the PDF file. File names are converted to the text encoding specified by the "-enc" switch. -save number Save the specified embedded file. By default, this uses the file name associated with the embedded file (as printed by the "-list" switch); the file name can be changed with the "-o" switch. -saveall Save all of the embedded files. This uses the file names associated with the embedded files (as printed by the "-list" switch). By default, the files are saved in the current directory; this can be changed with the "-o" switch. -o path Set the file name used when saving an embedded file with the "-save" switch, or the directory used by "-saveall". -enc encoding-name Sets the encoding to use for text output (embedded file names). The encoding-name must be defined with the unicodeMap command (see xpdfrc(5)). This defaults to "Latin1" (which is a built-in encoding). [config file: textEncoding] -opw password Specify the owner password for the PDF file. Providing this will bypass all security restrictions. -upw password Specify the user password for the PDF file. -cfg config-file Read config-file in place of ~/.xpdfrc or the system-wide config file. -v Print copyright and version information. -h Print usage information. (-help and --help are equivalent.) EXIT CODES
The Xpdf tools use the following exit codes: 0 No error. 1 Error opening a PDF file. 2 Error opening an output file. 3 Error related to PDF permissions. 99 Other error. AUTHOR

NAME
pdftotext - Portable Document Format (PDF) to text converter (version 2.01) SYNOPSIS
pdftotext [options] [PDF-file [text-file]] DESCRIPTION
Pdftotext converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to plain text. Pdftotext reads the PDF file, PDF-file, and writes a text file, text-file. If text-file is not specified, pdftotext converts file.pdf to file.txt. If text-file is '-', the text is sent to stdout. CONFIGURATION FILE
Pdftotext reads a configuration file at startup. It first tries to find the user's private config file, ~/.xpdfrc. If that doesn't exist, it looks for a system-wide config file, typically /etc/xpdfrc (but this location can be changed when pdftotext is built). See the xpdfrc(5) man page for details. OPTIONS
Many of the following options can be set with configuration file commands. These are listed in square brackets with the description of the corresponding command line option. -f number Specifies the first page to convert. -l number Specifies the last page to convert. -layout Maintain (as best as possible) the original physical layout of the text. The default is to 'undo' physical layout (columns, hyphen- ation, etc.) and output the text in reading order. -raw Keep the text in content stream order. This is a hack which often "undoes" column formatting, etc. Use of raw mode is no longer recommended. -htmlmeta Generate a simple HTML file, including the meta information. This simply wraps the text in <pre> and </pre> and prepends the meta headers. -enc encoding-name Sets the encoding to use for text output. The encoding-name must be defined with the unicodeMap command (see xpdfrc(5)). This defaults to "Latin1" (which is a built-in encoding). [config file: textEncoding] -eol unix | dos | mac Sets the end-of-line convention to use for text output. [config file: textEOL] -opw password Specify the owner password for the PDF file. Providing this will bypass all security restrictions. -upw password Specify the user password for the PDF file. -q Don't print any messages or errors. [config file: errQuiet] -cfg config-file Read config-file in place of ~/.xpdfrc or the system-wide config file. -v Print copyright and version information. -h Print usage information. (-help and --help are equivalent.) BUGS
Some PDF files contain fonts whose encodings have been mangled beyond recognition. There is no way (short of OCR) to extract text from these files. EXIT CODES
The Xpdf tools use the following exit codes: 0 No error. 1 Error opening a PDF file. 2 Error opening an output file. 3 Error related to PDF permissions. 99 Other error. AUTHOR
