SYNOPSIS

pdffonts [options] [PDF-file]

DESCRIPTION

Pdffonts lists the fonts used in a Portable Document Format (PDF) file along with various information for each font.

The following information is listed for each font:
name the font name, exactly as given in the PDF file (potentially including a subset prefix)
type the font type -- see below for details
emb "yes" if the font is embedded in the PDF file
sub "yes" if the font is a subset
uni "yes" if there is an explicit "ToUnicode" map in the PDF file (the absence of a ToUnicode map doesn’t necessarily mean that the text can’t be converted to Unicode)
object ID
  the font dictionary object ID (number and generation)
location
  the font location (see the -loc and -locPS options).
PDF files can contain the following types of fonts:

  Type 1 Type 1C -- aka Compact Font Format (CFF) Type 1C (OT) -- OpenType with 8-bit CFF data Type 3 TrueType TrueType (OT) -- OpenType with 8-bit TrueType data CID Type 0 -- 16-bit font with no specified type CID Type 0C -- 16-bit PostScript CFF font CID Type 0C (OT) -- OpenType with CID CFF data CID TrueType -- 16-bit TrueType font CID TrueType (OT) -- OpenType with CID TrueType data

CONFIGURATION FILE

Pdffonts 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, typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc (but this location can be changed when pdffonts is built). 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 analyze.
-loc Shows additional information on the location of the font that will be used when the PDF file is rasterized (with xpdf, pdftoppm, etc.).
-locPS Shows additional information on the location of the font that will be used when the PDF file is converted to PostScript (with pdftops).
-l number
  Specifies the last page to analyze.
-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.
-cfg config-file
  Read config-file in place of ~/.xpdfrc or the system-wide config file.
-v Print copyright and version information.
-h Print usage information. (-help and --help are equivalent.)

EXIT CODES

The Xpdf tools use the following exit codes:
0 No error.
1 Error opening a PDF file.
2 Error opening an output file.
3 Error related to PDF permissions.
99 Other error.
