       pdftopbm  -  Portable  Document	Format	(PDF) to Portable Bitmap (PBM) converter (version

       pdftopbm [options] PDF-file PBM-root

       Pdftopbm converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to black-and-white image	files  in
       Portable Bitmap (PBM) format.

       Pdftopbm  reads	the  PDF file, PDF-file, and writes one PBM file for each page, PBM-root-
       nnnnnn.pbm, where nnnnnn is the page number.

       Pdftopbm 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 pdftopbm 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 convert.

       -l number
	      Specifies the last page to convert.

       -r number
	      Specifies the resolution, in DPI.  The default is 150 DPI.

       -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.)

       Pdftopbm  uses X to do the rendering, so it is limited by the capabilities and performance
       of the X server.  In particular, high-resolution output requires lots  of  memory.   Also,
       non-scalable fonts will not look great.

       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.
