NAME
       pdftoppm	- Portable Document Format (PDF) to Portable Pixmap (PPM) con-
       verter (version 3.03)

SYNOPSIS
       pdftoppm	[options] PDF-file PPM-root

DESCRIPTION
       Pdftoppm	converts Portable Document Format (PDF)	files to  color	 image
       files  in Portable Pixmap (PPM) format, grayscale image files in	Porta-
       ble Graymap (PGM) format, or monochrome image files in Portable	Bitmap
       (PBM) format.

       Pdftoppm	reads the PDF file, PDF-file, and writes one PPM file for each
       page, PPM-root-number.ppm, where	number is the page number.

OPTIONS
       -f number
	      Specifies	the first page to convert.

       -l number
	      Specifies	the last page to convert.

       -o     Generates	only the odd numbered pages.

       -e     Generates	only the even numbered pages.

       -singlefile
	      Writes only the first page and does not add digits.

       -r number
	      Specifies	the X and Y resolution,	in DPI.	 The  default  is  150
	      DPI.

       -rx number
	      Specifies	the X resolution, in DPI.  The default is 150 DPI.

       -ry number
	      Specifies	the Y resolution, in DPI.  The default is 150 DPI.

       -scale-to number
	      Scales  the  long	 side of each page (width for landscape	pages,
	      height for portrait pages) to fit	in scale-to pixels.  The  size
	      of  the short side will be determined by the aspect ratio	of the
	      page.

       -scale-to-x number
	      Scales each page horizontally to fit in  scale-to-x  pixels.  If
	      scale-to-y  is  set  to -1, the vertical size will determined by
	      the aspect ratio of the page.

       -scale-to-y number
	      Scales each page vertically to  fit  in  scale-to-y  pixels.  If
	      scale-to-x  is set to -1,	the horizontal size will determined by
	      the aspect ratio of the page.

       -x number
	      Specifies	the x-coordinate of the	crop area top left corner

       -y number
	      Specifies	the y-coordinate of the	crop area top left corner

       -W number
	      Specifies	the width of crop area in pixels (default is 0)

       -H number
	      Specifies	the height of crop area	in pixels (default is 0)

       -sz number
	      Specifies	the size of crop square	in pixels (sets	W and H)

       -cropbox
	      Uses the crop box	rather than  media  box	 when  generating  the
	      files

       -mono  Generate a monochrome PBM	file (instead of a color PPM file).

       -gray  Generate a grayscale PGM file (instead of	a color	PPM file).

       -png   Generates	a PNG file instead a PPM file.

       -jpeg  Generates	a JPEG file instead a PPM file.

       -tiff  Generates	a TIFF file instead a PPM file.

       -tiffcompression	none | packbits	| jpeg | lzw | deflate
	      Specifies	the TIFF compression type.  This defaults to "none".

       -freetype yes | no
	      Enable  or  disable  FreeType  (a	TrueType / Type	1 font raster-
	      izer).  This defaults to "yes".

       -thinlinemode none | solid | shape
	      Specifies	the thin line mode. This defaults to "none".

       "solid":
	      adjust lines with	a width	less than one pixel to pixel  boundary
	      and paint	it with	a width	of one pixel.

       "shape":
	      adjust  lines with a width less than one pixel to	pixel boundary
	      and paint	it with	a width	of one pixel but with a	shape in  pro-
	      portion to its width.

       -aa yes | no
	      Enable or	disable	font anti-aliasing.  This defaults to "yes".

       -aaVector yes | no
	      Enable or	disable	vector anti-aliasing.  This defaults to	"yes".

       -opw password
	      Specify  the  owner  password  for the PDF file.	Providing this
	      will bypass all security restrictions.

       -upw password
