SYNOPSIS

pdftohtml [options] PDF-file HTML-dir

DESCRIPTION

Pdftohtml converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to HTML.

Pdftohtml reads the PDF file, PDF-file, and places an HTML file for each page, along with auxiliary images in the directory, HTML-dir. The HTML directory will be created; if it already exists, pdftohtml will report an error.

CONFIGURATION FILE

Pdftohtml 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 pdftohtml 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 convert.
-l number
  Specifies the last page to convert.
-r Specifies the resolution, in DPI, for background images. The default is 150 DPI.
-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]
-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.)

BUGS

Some PDF files contain fonts whose encodings have been mangled beyond recognition. There is no way (short of OCR) to extract text from these files.

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.
