NAME
       pdfinfo - Portable Document Format (PDF) document information extractor (version 3.03)

SYNOPSIS
       pdfinfo [options] [PDF-file]

DESCRIPTION
       Pdfinfo	prints the contents of the 'Info' dictionary (plus some other useful information)
       from a Portable Document Format (PDF) file.

       The 'Info' dictionary contains the following values:

	      title
	      subject
	      keywords
	      author
	      creator
	      producer
	      creation date
	      modification date

       In addition, the following information is printed:

	      tagged (yes/no)
	      form (AcroForm / XFA / none)
	      page count
	      encrypted flag (yes/no)
	      print and copy permissions (if encrypted)
	      page size
	      file size
	      linearized (yes/no)
	      PDF version
	      metadata (only if requested)

OPTIONS
       -f number
	      Specifies the first page to examine.  If multiple pages  are  requested  using  the
	      "-f" and "-l" options, the size of each requested page (and, optionally, the bound-
	      ing boxes for each requested page) are printed.  Otherwise, only page one is  exam-
	      ined.

       -l number
	      Specifies the last page to examine.

       -box   Prints  the page box bounding boxes: MediaBox, CropBox, BleedBox, TrimBox, and Art-
	      Box.

	      Catalog object.)

       -rawdates
	      Prints the raw (undecoded) date strings, directly from the PDF file.

       -enc encoding-name
	      Sets the encoding to use for text output. This defaults to "UTF-8".

       -listenc
	      Lits the available encodings

       -opw password
	      Specify  the owner password for the PDF file.  Providing this will bypass all secu-
	      rity restrictions.

       -upw password
	      Specify the user password for the PDF file.

       -v     Print copyright and version information.
