NAME
       pdfinfo - Portable Document Format (PDF)	document information extractor
       (version	3.03)

SYNOPSIS
       pdfinfo [options] [PDF-file]

DESCRIPTION
       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:

	      title
	      subject
	      keywords
	      author
	      creator
	      producer
	      creation date
	      modification date

       In addition, the	following information is printed:

	      tagged (yes/no)
	      form (AcroForm / XFA / none)
	      javascript (yes/no)
	      page count
	      encrypted	flag (yes/no)
	      print and	copy permissions (if encrypted)
	      page size
	      file size
	      linearized (yes/no)
	      PDF version
	      metadata (only if	requested)

       The  options -listenc, -meta, -js, -struct, and -struct-text only print
       the requested information.  The	'Info'	dictionary  and	 related  data
       listed  above  is not printed. At most one of these five	options	may be
       used.

OPTIONS
       -f number
	      Specifies	the first page to examine.  If multiple	pages are  re-
	      quested  using  the  "-f"	and "-l" options, the size of each re-
	      quested page (and, optionally, the bounding boxes	for  each  re-
	      quested  page)  are  printed.  Otherwise,	only page one is exam-
	      ined.

       -l number
	      Specifies	the last page to examine.

       -box   Prints the page box bounding boxes: MediaBox, CropBox, BleedBox,
	      TrimBox, and ArtBox.

       -meta  Prints  document-level metadata.	(This is the "Metadata"	stream
	      from the PDF file's Catalog object.)

       -js    Prints all JavaScript in the PDF.

       -struct
	      Prints the logical document structure of a Tagged-PDF file.

       -struct-text
	      Print the	textual	content	along with the document	structure of a
	      Tagged-PDF  file.	  Note	that extracting	text this way might be
	      slow for big PDF files.  (Implies	-struct.)

       -isodates
	      Prints dates in ISO-8601 format (including the time zone).

       -rawdates
	      Prints the raw (undecoded) date strings, directly	from  the  PDF
	      file.

       -enc encoding-name
	      Sets  the	 encoding  to  use  for	 text output. This defaults to
	      "UTF-8".

       -listenc
	      Lits the available encodings

       -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.

       -v     Print copyright and version information.

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

EXIT CODES
       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.
