       pdfinfo [options] [PDF-file]


       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:

              creation date
              modification date

       In addition, the following information is printed:

              tagged (yes/no)
              form (AcroForm / XFA / none)
              javascript (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)

       The options -listenc, -meta, -js, -struct,  and  -struct-text  only  print  the  requested
       information.  The  'Info' dictionary and related data listed above is not printed. At most
       one of these five options may be used.

              bounding boxes for each requested page) are printed.  Otherwise, only page  one  is
