       pdfimages - Portable Document Format (PDF) image extractor (version 2.01)

       pdfimages [options] PDF-file image-root

       Pdfimages  saves  images  from  a  Portable  Document Format (PDF) file as Portable Pixmap
       (PPM), Portable Bitmap (PBM), or JPEG files.

       Pdfimages reads the PDF file, scans one or more pages, PDF-file, and writes one PPM,  PBM,
       or  JPEG file for each image, image-root-nnn.xxx, where nnn is the image number and xxx is
       the image type (.ppm, .pbm, .jpg).

       Pdfimages 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 /etc/xpdfrc (but this location can be changed when  pdfimages  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 scan.

       -l number
	      Specifies the last page to scan.

       -j     Normally, all images are written as PBM (for monochrome images) or  PPM  (for  non-
	      monochrome images) files.  With this option, images in DCT format are saved as JPEG
	      files.  All non-DCT images are saved in PBM/PPM format as usual.

       -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.

       -q     Don't print any messages or errors.  [config file: errQuiet]

       -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.
