SYNOPSIS

pdftoppm [options] PDF-file PPM-root

DESCRIPTION

Pdftoppm converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to color image files in Portable Pixmap (PPM) format, grayscale image files in Portable Graymap (PGM) format, or monochrome image files in Portable Bitmap (PBM) format.

Pdftoppm reads the PDF file, PDF-file, and writes one PPM file for each page, PPM-root-nnnnnn.ppm, where nnnnnn is the page number. If PPM-root is '-’, the image is sent to stdout (this is probably only useful when converting a single page).

CONFIGURATION FILE

Pdftoppm 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 pdftoppm 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 number
  Specifies the resolution, in DPI. The default is 150 DPI.
-mono Generate a monochrome PBM file (instead of a color PPM file).
-gray Generate a grayscale PGM file (instead of a color PPM file).
-freetype yes | no
  Enable or disable FreeType (a TrueType / Type 1 font rasterizer). This defaults to "yes". [config file: enableFreeType]
-aa yes | no
  Enable or disable font anti-aliasing. This defaults to "yes". [config file: antialias]
-aaVector yes | no
  Enable or disable vector anti-aliasing. This defaults to "yes". [config file: vectorAntialias]
-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]
-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.

3 Error related to PDF permissions.
