NAME

       mutool - all purpose tool for dealing with PDF files

SYNOPSIS

       mutool <sub-command> [options]

DESCRIPTION

       mutool is a tool based on MuPDF for dealing with document files in various manners.  There
       are several sub commands available, as described below.

DRAW

       mutool draw [options] file [pages]

       The draw command will render a document to image files, convert to another vector format,
       or extract the text content.

       The supported input document formats are: pdf, xps, cbz, and epub.

       The supported output image formats are: pbm, pgm, ppm, pam, png, tga, pwg, pcl and ps.
       The supported output vector formats are: svg, pdf, and debug trace (as xml).  The
       supported output text formats are: plain text, html, and structured text (as xml).

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       -o output
              The output format is inferred from the output filename.  Embed %d in the name to
              indicate the page number (for example: "page%d.png").  Printf modifiers are
              supported, for example "%03d".  If no output is specified, the output will go to
              stdout.

       -F format
              Enforce a specific output format. Only necessary when outputting to stdout since
              normally the output filename is used to infer the output format.

       -R angle
              Rotate clockwise by given number of degrees.

       -r resolution
              Render the page at the specified resolution.  The default resolution is 72 dpi.

       -w width
              Render the page at the specified width (or, if the -r flag is used, render with a
              maximum width).

       -h height
              Render the page at the specified height (or, if the -r flag is used, render with a
              maximum height).

       -f     Fit exactly; ignore the aspect ratio when matching specified width/heights.

       -B bandheight
              Render in banded mode with each band no taller than the given height. This uses
              less memory during rendering. Only compatible with pam, pgm, ppm, pnm and png
              output formats. Banded rendering and md5 checksumming may not be used at the same
              time.

       -W width
              Page width in points for EPUB layout.

       -H height
              Page height in points for EPUB layout.

       -S size
              Font size in points for EPUB layout.

       -U filename
              User CSS stylesheet for EPUB layout.

       -c colorspace
              Render in the specified colorspace.  Supported colorspaces are: mono, gray,
              grayalpha, rgb, rgbalpha, cmyk, cmykalpha.  Some abbreviations are allowed: m, g,
              ga, rgba, cmyka.  The default is chosen based on the output format.

       -G gamma
              Apply gamma correction.  Some typical values are 0.7 or 1.4 to thin or darken text
              rendering.

       -I     Invert colors.

       -s [mft5]
              Show various bits of information: m for glyph cache and total memory usage, f for
              page features such as whether the page is grayscale or color, t for per page
              rendering times as well statistics, and 5 for md5 checksums of rendered images that
              can be used to check if rendering has changed.

       -A bits
              Specify how many bits of anti-aliasing to use. The default is 8.

       -D     Disable use of display lists. May cause slowdowns, but should reduce the amount of
              memory used.

       -i     Ignore errors.

       -L     Low memory mode (avoid caching objects by clearing cache after each page).

       -P     Run interpretation and rendering at the same time.

       pages  Comma separated list of page numbers and ranges (for example: 1,5,10-15).  If no
              pages are specified, then all pages will be rendered.

CLEAN

       mutool clean [options] input.pdf [output.pdf] [pages]

       The clean command pretty prints and rewrites the syntax of a PDF file.  It can be used to
       repair broken files, expand compressed streams, filter out a range of pages, etc.

       If no output file is specified, it will write the cleaned PDF to "out.pdf" in the current
       directory.

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       -g     Garbage collect objects that have no references from other objects.  Give the
              option twice to renumber all objects and compact the cross reference table.  Give
              it three times to merge and reuse duplicate objects.

       -s     Rewrite content streams.

       -d     Decompress streams. This will make the output file larger, but provides easy access
              for reading and editing the contents with a text editor.

       -l     Linearize output. Create a "Web Optimized" output file.

       -i     Toggle decompression of image streams. Use in conjunction with -d to leave images
              compressed.

       -f     Toggle decompression of font streams. Use in conjunction with -d to leave fonts
              compressed.

       -a     ASCII Hex encode binary streams. Use in conjunction with -d and -i or -f to ensure
              that although the images and/or fonts are compressed, the resulting file can still
              be viewed and edited with a text editor.

       -z     Deflate uncompressed streams.  If combined with -d, any decompressed streams will
              be recompressed.  If combined with -a, the streams will also be hex encoded after
              compression.

       pages  Comma separated list of page numbers and ranges to include.

EXTRACT

       mutool extract [options] file.pdf [object numbers]

       The extract command can be used to extract images and font files from a PDF.  If no object
       numbers are given on the command line, all images and fonts will be extracted.

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       -r     Convert images to RGB when extracting them.

INFO

       mutool info [options] file.pdf [pages]

       The info command lists the resources used on each page in a PDF file.  The default is to
       list all resource types, but if one or more flags are given, only the flagged types will
       be shown.

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       -F     List fonts.

       -I     List images.

       -M     List page dimensions.

       -S     List shadings.

CREATE

       mutool create [-o output.pdf] [options] page1.txt [page2.txt ...]

       The create command creates a new PDF file with the contents created from one or more input
       files containing graphics commands.

       -o output
              If no output file is specified, it will write the created PDF to "out.pdf" in the
              current directory.

       page.txt
              A page is created for each input file, with the contents of the file copied into
              the content stream. Special comments in the input files are parsed to define the
              page dimensions and font and image resources:

       %%MediaBox 0 0 500 800
       %%Rotate 90
       %%Font Tm Times-Roman
       %%Font Fn0 path/to/font/file.ttf
       %%Image Im0 path/to/image.png

       -O     Comma separated list of format specific output options:

              decompress
              Decompress all object streams.

              Optimize document for progressive loading in viewers.

              sanitize
              Clean up graphics command in content streams.

              garbage[=compact|deduplicate]
              Garbage collect unused objects. With compact the cross-reference table will also be
              compacted. With deduplicate duplicate objects will also be recombined.

PAGES

       mutool pages [options] input.pdf [pages ...]

       The pages command dumps information about the size and orientation of pages within the
       document.

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       pages  Comma separated list of page numbers and ranges to include.

POSTER

       mutool poster [options] input.pdf [output.pdf]

       The poster command splits each page into tiles, and puts each tile on a page of its own.
       It's useful for printing a large page onto smaller pieces of paper that can then be glued
       together to create a large poster.

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       -x factor

       -y factor
              Split the page into this many vertical pieces.

       The output will have x times y number of pages for each input page.

SHOW

       mutool show [options] file.pdf [object numbers ...]

       The show command will print the specified objects and streams to stdout.  Streams are
       decoded and non-printable characters are represented with a period by default.

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       -o file
              Write output to file instead of stdout.

       -b     Print streams as binary data and omit the object header.

       -e     Print streams in their original encoded (or compressed) form.

       Specify objects by number, or use one of the following special names:

       'xref' or 'x'
              Print the cross reference table.

       'trailer' or 't'
              Print the trailer dictionary.

       'encrypt' or 'e'
              Print the encryption dictionary.

       'pagetree' or 'p'
              List the object numbers for every page.

       'grep' or 'g'
              Print all the objects in the file in a compact one-line format suitable for piping
              to grep.

       'outline' or 'o'
              Print the outline (table of contents).

RUN

       mutool run script.js [arguments]

       Executes a Javascript program which has access to most of the features of the MuPDF
       library. The command supports ECMAScript 5 syntax in strict mode. All of the MuPDF
       constructors and function live in the global object, and the command line arguments are
       accessible from the global argv object.

       If invoke without any arguments, it will drop you into an interactive REPL (read-eval-
       print-loop). On the interactive prompt, if you prefix a line with an equal character it
       will automatically print the results of the line.

       See the MuPDF documentation for details about the Javascript interfaces.

CONVERT

       mutool convert [options] file [pages]

       The convert command is used to convert a file from one format to another.

       -p password
              Use the specified password if the file is encrypted.

       -A bits
              Specify how many bits of anti-aliasing to use. The default is 8.

       -W width
              Page width in points for EPUB layout.

       -H height
              Page height in points for EPUB layout.

       -S size
              Font size in points for EPUB layout.

       -U filename
              User CSS stylesheet for EPUB layout.

       -o output
              The output format is inferred from the output filename.  Embed %d in the name to
              indicate the page number (for example: "page%d.png").  Printf modifiers are
              supported, for example "%03d".  If no output is specified, the output will go to
              stdout.

       -F format
              Enforce a specific output format. Only necessary when outputting to stdout since
              normally the output filename is used to infer the output format.

       -O     Comma separated list of format specific output options:

MERGE

       mutool merge [options] file1 [pages] file2 [pages] ...
