NAME

       pdftoppm  -  Portable  Document  Format  (PDF) to Portable Pixmap (PPM)
       converter (version 3.02)

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
       Portable 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-nnnnnn.ppm, where nnnnnn is the page number.

CONFIGURATION FILE

       Pdftoppm reads a configuration file at startup.  It first tries to find
       the  user’s  private config file, ~/.xpdfrc.  If that doesn’t exist, it
       looks  for  a  system-wide  config  file,  /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc.  See   the
       xpdfrc(5) man page for details.

OPTIONS

       Many  of  the  following  options  can  be  set with configuration file
       commands.  These are listed in square brackets with the description  of
       the corresponding command line option.

       -f number
              Specifies the first page to convert.

       -l number
              Specifies the last page to convert.

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

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

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

       -t1lib yes | no
              Enable  or  disable  t1lib  (a  Type  1  font rasterizer).  This
              defaults to "yes".  [config file: enableT1lib]

       -freetype yes | no
              Enable  or  disable  FreeType  (a  TrueType  /   Type   1   font
              rasterizer).    This   defaults   to   "yes".    [config   file:
              enableFreeType]

       -aa yes | no

              [config file: vectorAntialias]

       -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.

       -q     Don’t print any messages or errors.  [config file: errQuiet]

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