NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       pdffonts - Portable Document Format (PDF) font analyzer (version 1.00)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       pdffonts [options] [PDF-file]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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 prefix)

       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 /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
       (but this location can be changed when pdffonts	is  built).   See  the
       xpdfrc(5) man page for details.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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 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

       -v     Print copyright and version information.

       -h     Print usage information.	(-help and --help are equivalent.)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       No known bugs.
