NAME

       pdfgrep - search pdf files for a regular expression

SYNOPSIS

       pdfgrep [OPTION...]  PATTERN FILE...

DESCRIPTION

       Search for PATTERN in each FILE. PATTERN is an extended regular expression.

       pdfgrep works much like grep, with one distinction: It operates on pages and not on lines.

OPTIONS

       -i, --ignore-case
              Ignore case distinctions in both the PATTERN and the input files.

       -H, --with-filename
              Print  the file name for each match. This is the default setting when there is more
              than one file to search.

       -h, --no-filename
              Suppress the prefixing of file name on output. This is  the  default  setting  when
              there is only one file to search.

       -n, --page-number
              Prefix each match with the number of the page where it was found.

       -c, --count
              Suppress  normal  output.  Instead print the number of matches for each input file.
              Note that  unlike  grep,  multiple  matches  on  the  same  page  will  be  counted
              individually.

       -C, --context NUM
              Print  at  most  NUM characters of context around each match. The exact number will
              vary, because pdfgrep tries to respect word boundaries. If NUM is "line", the whole
              line  will be printed. If this option is not set, pdfgrep tries to print lines that
              are not longer than the terminal width.

       --color WHEN
              Surround file names, page numbers and matched text with escape sequences to display
              them in color on the terminal. (The default setting is auto).

              WHEN can be:

              always Always use colors, even when stdout is not a terminal.

              never  Do not use colors.

              auto   Use colors only when stdout is a terminal.

       -q, --quiet
              Suppress  all  normal  output  to stdout. Errors will be printed and the exit codes
              will be returned (see below).

       --help Print a short summary of the options.

       -V, --version
              Show version information

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       The behavior of pdfgrep is affected by the following environment variable.

       GREP_COLORS
              Specifies the colors and other attributes used to highlight various  parts  of  the
              output.   The syntax and values are like GREP_COLORS of grep.  See grep(1) for more
              details.  Currently only the capabilities mt, ms, mc, fn, ln and  se  are  used  by
              pdfgrep, where mt, ms and mc have the same effect on pdfgrep.

EXIT STATUS

       Normally,  the exit status is 0 if at least one match is found, 1 if no match is found and
       2 if an error occurred.  But if the --quiet or -q option is used and a  match  was  found,
       pdfgrep will return 0 regardless of errors.
