dumppdf - dumps internal contents of a PDF files SYNOPSIS
dumppdf [option...] file... DESCRIPTION
dumppdf dumps the internal contents of a PDF file in pseudo-XML format. This program is primarily for debugging purposes, but it's also possible to extract some meaningful contents OPTIONS
-a Dump all the objects. By default only the document trailer is printed. -i objno[,objno,...] Specifies PDF object IDs to display. Comma-separated IDs, or multiple -i options are accepted. -p pageno[,pageno,...] Specifies the comma-separated list of the page numbers to be extracted. Page numbers start at one. By default, it extracts text from all the pages. -r, -b, -t Specifies the output format of stream contents. Because the contents of stream objects can be very large, they are omitted when none of the options above is specified. With -r option, the "raw" stream contents are dumped without decompression. With -b option, the decompressed contents are dumped as a binary blob. With -t option, the decompressed contents are dumped in a text format, similar to repr() manner. When -r or -b option is given, no stream header is displayed for the ease of saving it to a file. -T Show the table of contents. -P password Provides the user password to access PDF contents. -d Increase the debug level. EXAMPLES
Dump all the headers and contents, except stream objects: $ dumppdf -a test.pdf Dump the table of contents: $ dumppdf -T test.pdf Extract a JPEG image: $ dumppdf -r -i6 test.pdf > image.jpeg SEE ALSO

The default resolution is 72 dpi. -R angle Rotate clockwise by given number of degrees. -a Save the alpha channel. The default behavior is to render each page with a white background.

If the output format is pgm or ppm this option is ignored. -m Show timing information. Take the time it takes for each page to render and print a summary at the end. -5 Print an MD5 checksum of the rendered image data for each page. -t Print the text contents of each page in UTF-8 encoding. Give the option twice to print detailed information about the location of each character in XML format. -x Print the display list used to render each page. -A Disable the use of accelerated functions. -G gamma Gamma correct the output image.
