NAME
pdfinfo - Portable Document Format (PDF) document information extractor (version 2.01) 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: page count encrypted flag (yes/no) print and copy permissions (if encrypted) linearized (yes/no) CONFIGURATION FILE
Pdfinfo 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 pdfinfo is built). See the xpdfrc(5) man page for details. OPTIONS
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. -meta Prints document-level metadata. (This is the "Metadata" stream from the PDF file's Catalog object.) -enc encoding-name Sets the encoding to use for text output. 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] -opw password Specify the owner password for the PDF file. Providing this will bypass all security 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.) EXIT CODES
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. AUTHOR
