RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pdfinfo (redhat section 1)

pdfinfo(1)									       pdfinfo(1)

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 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.)

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.
