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)
              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)

OPTIONS

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

       -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.)

       -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.)
