       pdffonts - Portable Document Format (PDF) font analyzer (version(1,3,5) 3.00)

       pdffonts [options] [PDF-file]

       Pdffonts  lists the fonts used in(1,8) a Portable Document Format (PDF) file(1,n)
       along with various information for each font.

       The following information is listed for each font:

       name   the font name, exactly as given in(1,8)  the  PDF  file(1,n)  (potentially
              including a subset prefix)

       type   the font type -- see below for details

       emb    "yes" if(3,n) the font is embedded in(1,8) the PDF file(1,n)

       sub    "yes" if(3,n) the font is a subset

       uni    "yes"  if(3,n)  there  is an explicit "ToUnicode" map in(1,8) the PDF file(1,n)
              (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)

       PDF files can contain the following types of fonts:

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

       Pdffonts reads a configuration file(1,n) at startup.  It first tries to find
       the user's private config(1,5) file(1,n), ~/.xpdfrc.  If that doesn't  exist,  it
       looks  for  a  system-wide config(1,5) file(1,n), typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
       (but this location can be changed when pdffonts  is  built).   See  the
       xpdfrc(5) man(1,5,7) page for details.

       Many  of  the following options can be set(7,n,1 builtins) with configuration file(1,n) com-
       mands.  These are listed in(1,8) square brackets with the description of the
       corresponding command line option.

       -f number
              Specifies the first page to analyze.

       -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(1,8) place of ~/.xpdfrc or the system-wide config(1,5)

       -v     Print copyright and version(1,3,5) information.

       -h     Print usage information.  (-help and --help are equivalent.)

       The Xpdf tools use the following exit(3,n,1 builtins) 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.
