    5 NAME
    6        pdftohtml  -  Portable Document Format (PDF) to HTML converter (version
    7        4.02)
    8 
    9 SYNOPSIS
   10        pdftohtml [options] PDF-file HTML-dir
   11 
   12 DESCRIPTION
   13        Pdftohtml converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to HTML.
   14 
   15        Pdftohtml reads the PDF file, PDF-file, and places  an  HTML  file  for
   16        each page, along with auxiliary images in the directory, HTML-dir.  The
   17        HTML directory will be created; if it already  exists,  pdftohtml  will
   18        report an error.
   19 
   20 CONFIGURATION FILE
   21        Pdftohtml  reads  a  configuration  file at startup.  It first tries to
   22        find the user's private config file, ~/.xpdfrc.  If that doesn't exist,
   23        it looks for a system-wide config file, typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
   24        (but this location can be changed when pdftohtml is  built).   See  the
   25        xpdfrc(5) man page for details.
   26 
   27 OPTIONS
   28        Many  of  the following options can be set with configuration file com-
   29        mands.  These are listed in square brackets with the description of the
   30        corresponding command line option.
   31 
   32        -f number
   33               Specifies the first page to convert.
   34 
   35        -l number
   36               Specifies the last page to convert.
   37 
   38        -z number
   39               Specifies  the  initial  zoom  level.  The default is 1.0, which
   40               means 72dpi, i.e., 1 point in the PDF file will be  1  pixel  in
   41               the  HTML.   Using  '-z 1.5', for example, will make the initial
   42               view 50% larger.
   43 
   44        -r number
   45               Specifies the resolution, in DPI, for background  images.   This
   46               controls the pixel size of the background image files.  The ini-
   47               tial zoom level is controlled by the '-z' option.  Specifying  a
   48               larger '-r' value will allow the viewer to zoom in farther with-
   49               out upscaling artifacts in the background.
   50 
   51        -skipinvisible
   52               Don't draw invisible text.  By default, invisible text (commonly
   53               used in OCR'ed PDF files) is drawn as transparent (alpha=0) HTML
   54               text.  This option tells pdftohtml  to  discard  invisible  text
   55               entirely.
   56 
   57        -allinvisible
   58               Treat  all  text as invisible.  By default, regular (non-invisi-
   59               ble) text is not drawn in the background image, and  is  instead
   60               drawn  with  HTML on top of the image.  This option tells pdfto-
   61               html to include the regular text in the  background  image,  and
   62               then draw it as transparent (alpha=0) HTML text.
   63 
   64        -opw password
   65               Specify  the  owner  password  for the PDF file.  Providing this
   66               will bypass all security restrictions.
   67 
   68        -upw password
   69               Specify the user password for the PDF file.
   70 
   71        -q     Don't print any messages or errors.  [config file: errQuiet]
   72 
   73        -cfg config-file
   74               Read config-file in place of ~/.xpdfrc or the system-wide config
   75               file.
   76 
   77        -v     Print copyright and version information.
   78 
   79        -h     Print usage information.  (-help and --help are equivalent.)
   80 
   81 BUGS
   82        Some  PDF  files contain fonts whose encodings have been mangled beyond
   83        recognition.  There is no way (short of OCR) to extract text from these
   84        files.
   85

   88 
   89        0      No error.
