NAME
       pdftoppm - Portable Document Format (PDF) to Portable Pixmap (PPM) con-
       verter (version(1,3,5) 3.00)

SYNOPSIS
       pdftoppm [options] PDF-file PPM-root

DESCRIPTION
       Pdftoppm converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to  color  image
       files  in(1,8) Portable Pixmap (PPM) format, grayscale image files in(1,8) Porta-
       ble Graymap (PGM) format, or monochrome image files in(1,8) Portable  Bitmap
       (PBM) format.

       Pdftoppm reads the PDF file(1,n), PDF-file, and writes one PPM file(1,n) for each
       page, PPM-root-nnnnnn.ppm, where nnnnnn is the page number.

CONFIGURATION FILE
       Pdftoppm 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 pdftoppm is built).  See the
       xpdfrc(5) man(1,5,7) page for details.

OPTIONS
       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 convert.

       -l number
              Specifies the last page to convert.

       -r number
              Specifies the resolution, in(1,8) DPI.  The default is 150 DPI.

       -mono  Generate a monochrome PBM file(1,n) (instead of a color PPM file(1,n)).

       -gray  Generate a grayscale PGM file(1,n) (instead of a color PPM file(1,n)).

       -t1lib yes | no
              Enable or disable  t1lib  (a  Type  1  font  rasterizer).   This
              defaults to "yes".  [config(1,5) file: enableT1lib]

       -freetype yes | no
              Enable  or  disable  FreeType  (a TrueType / Type 1 font raster-
              izer).  This defaults to "yes".  [config(1,5) file: enableFreeType]

       -aa yes | no
              Enable or disable font anti-aliasing.  This defaults  to  "yes".
              [config(1,5) file: antialias]

       -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(1,5) file: errQuiet]

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

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

EXIT CODES
       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.
