       pdffonts - Portable Document Format (PDF) font analyzer (version 2.01)

       pdffonts [options] [PDF-file]

       Pdffonts  lists the fonts used in a Portable Document Format (PDF) file along with various
       information for each font.

       The following information is listed for each font:

       name   the font name, exactly as given in the PDF file  (potentially  including	a  subset

       type   the font type -- see below for details

       emb    "yes" if the font is embedded in the PDF file

       sub    "yes" if the font is a subset

       uni    "yes"  if  there	is  an explicit "ToUnicode" map in the PDF file (the absence of a
	      ToUnicode map doesn't necessarily mean that the text can't be converted to Unicode)

       object ID
	      the font dictionary object ID (number and generation)

       PDF files can contain the following types of fonts:

	      Type 1
	      Type 1C -- aka Compact Font Format (CFF)
	      Type 3
	      CID Type 0 -- 16-bit font with no specified type
	      CID Type 0C -- 16-bit PostScript CFF font
	      CID TrueType -- 16-bit TrueType font

       Pdffonts 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 pdffonts is built).  See  the
       xpdfrc(5) man page for details.

       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 analyze.

       -l number
	      Specifies the last page to analyze.

       -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.

       -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.)

       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.
