   11 
   12 DESCRIPTION
   13        Pdfinfo prints the contents of the 'Info' dictionary (plus  some  other
   14        useful information) from a Portable Document Format (PDF) file.
   15 
   16        The 'Info' dictionary contains the following values:
   17 
   18               title
   19               subject
   20               keywords
   21               author
   22               creator
   23               producer
   24               creation date
   25               modification date
   26 
   27        In addition, the following information is printed:
   28 
   29               tagged (yes/no)
   30               form (AcroForm / static XFA / dynamic XFA / none)
   31               page count
   32               encrypted flag (yes/no)
   33               print and copy permissions (if encrypted)
   34               page size and rotation
   35               file size
   36               linearized (yes/no)
   37               PDF version
   38               metadata (only if requested)
   39 
   40 CONFIGURATION FILE
   41        Pdfinfo  reads a configuration file at startup.  It first tries to find
   42        the user's private config file, ~/.xpdfrc.  If that doesn't  exist,  it
   43        looks  for  a  system-wide config file, typically /etc/xpdfrc (but this
   44        location can be changed when pdfinfo is built).  See the xpdfrc(5)  man
   45        page for details.
   46 
   47 OPTIONS
   48        Many  of  the following options can be set with configuration file com-
   49        mands.  These are listed in square brackets with the description of the
   50        corresponding command line option.
   51 
   52        -f number
   53               Specifies  the  first  page  to  examine.  If multiple pages are
   54               requested using the "-f" and "-l"  options,  the  size  of  each
   55               requested  page  (and,  optionally,  the bounding boxes for each
   56               requested page) are printed.  Otherwise, only page one is  exam-
   57               ined.
   58 
   59        -l number
   60               Specifies the last page to examine.
   61 
   62        -box   Prints the page box bounding boxes: MediaBox, CropBox, BleedBox,
   63               TrimBox, and ArtBox.
   64 
   65        -meta  Prints document-level metadata.  (This is the "Metadata"  stream
   66               from the PDF file's Catalog object.)
   67 
   68        -rawdates
   69               Prints  the  raw (undecoded) date strings, directly from the PDF
   70               file.
   71 
   72        -enc encoding-name
   73               Sets the encoding to use for  text  output.   The  encoding-name
   74               must  be  defined  with  the unicodeMap command (see xpdfrc(5)).
   75               This defaults to "Latin1" (which is a built-in encoding).  [con-
   76               fig file: textEncoding]
   77 
   78        -opw password
   79               Specify  the  owner  password  for the PDF file.  Providing this
   80               will bypass all security restrictions.
   81 
   82        -upw password
   83               Specify the user password for the PDF file.
   84 
   85        -cfg config-file
   86               Read config-file in place of ~/.xpdfrc or the system-wide config
   87               file.
   88 
   89        -v     Print copyright and version information.
   90 
   91        -h     Print usage information.  (-help and --help are equivalent.)
   92

   94        The Xpdf tools use the following exit codes:
   95 
   96        0      No error.
