       pdftoppm - Portable Document Format (PDF) to Portable Pixmap (PPM) con-
       verter (version 3.02)

       pdftoppm [options] PDF-file PPM-root

       Pdftoppm converts Portable Document Format (PDF) files to  color  image
       files  in Portable Pixmap (PPM) format, grayscale image files in Porta-
       ble 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.

       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,  /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc.  See   the
       xpdfrc(5) man page for details.

       Many  of  the following options can be set with configuration file com-
       mands.  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).

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

       -freetype yes | no
              Enable or disable FreeType (a TrueType /  Type  1  font  raster-

       -opw password
              Specify  the  owner  password  for the PDF file.  Providing this
              will bypass all security restrictions.

              Specify the user password for the PDF file.
