pdfdetach - Portable Document Format (PDF) document embedded file extractor (version 3.03)
pdfdetach [options] [PDF-file]
Pdfdetach lists or extracts embedded files (attachments) from a Portable Document Format
Pdfdetach reads a configuration file at startup. It first tries to find the user's pri-
vate 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.
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 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.
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.
Set the file name used when saving an embedded file with the "-save" switch, or the
directory used by "-saveall".
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]
Specify the owner password for the PDF file. Providing this will bypass all secu-
Specify the user password for the PDF 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.)
