NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       pdfinfo - Portable Document Format (PDF) document information extractor
       (version 1.00)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       pdfinfo [options] [PDF-file]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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:

	      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)


       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 /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
       (but this location can be changed when  pdfinfo	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.

       -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.
