xpdfrc


DESCRIPTION
       All  of the Xpdf tools read a single configuration file.  If you have a
       .xpdfrc file in your home directory, it will  be  read.   Otherwise,  a
       system-wide  configuration  file will be read from /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc, if
       it exists.  (This is its default location; depending on build  options,
       it  may be placed elsewhere.)  On Win32 systems, the xpdfrc file should
       be placed in the same directory as the executables.

       The xpdfrc file consists of a series of configuration options, one  per
       line.   Blank  lines  and  lines  starting  with  a  '#' (comments) are
       ignored.

       The following sections list all of the  configuration  options,  sorted
       into functional groups.  There is an examples section at the end.

       Note  that  all  settings  are  case-sensitive;  in particular, boolean
       options are "yes" and "no" (rather than "Yes" or "No").

INCLUDE FILES
       include config-file
              Includes the specified config  file.   The  effect  of  this  is
              equivalent  to  inserting  the  contents of config-file directly
              into the parent config file in place  of  the  include  command.
              Config files can be nested arbitrarily deeply.

CHARACTER MAPPING
       nameToUnicode map-file
              Specifies  a  file with the mapping from character names to Uni-
              code.  This is used to handle PDF fonts that have  valid  encod-
              ings  but no ToUnicode entry.  Each line of a nameToUnicode file
              looks like this:

                   hex-string name

              The hex-string is the Unicode (UCS-2) character index, and  name
              is  the  corresponding  character  name.  Multiple nameToUnicode
              files can be used; if a character name is given more than  once,
              the  code in the last specified file is used.  There is a built-
              in default nameToUnicode table  with  all  of  Adobe's  standard
              character names.

       cidToUnicode registry-ordering map-file
              Specifies the file with the mapping from character collection to
              Unicode.  Each line of a cidToUnicode file represents one  char-
              acter:

                   hex-string

              The  hex-string is the Unicode (UCS-2) index for that character.
              The first line maps CID 0, the second line  CID  1,  etc.   File
              size  is  determined  by size of the character collection.  Only
              one file is allowed per character collection; the last specified
              file is used.  There are no built-in cidToUnicode mappings.
              rest  of  the  fields  are  one or more output (correct) Unicode
              indexes.  Each occurrence of in-hex will  be  converted  to  the
              specified output sequence.

       unicodeMap encoding-name map-file
              Specifies  the  file with mapping from Unicode to encoding-name.
              These encodings are used for X display  fonts  and  text  output
              (see  below).  Each line of a unicodeMap file represents a range
              of one or more Unicode characters which maps linearly to a range
              in the output encoding:

                   in-start-hex in-end-hex out-start-hex

              Entries for single characters can be abbreviated to:

                   in-hex out-hex

              The  in-start-hex  and  in-end-hex  fields (or the single in-hex
              field) specify the Unicode range.  The out-start-hex  field  (or
              the  out-hex  field)  specifies the start of the output encoding
              range.  The length of  the  out-start-hex  (or  out-hex)  string
              determines the length of the output characters (e.g., UTF-8 uses
              different numbers of bytes to represent characters in  different
              ranges).   Entries  must  be  given in increasing Unicode order.
              Only one file is allowed per encoding; the last  specified  file
              is  used.   The Latin1, ASCII7, Symbol, ZapfDingbats, UTF-8, and
              UCS-2 encodings are predefined.

       cMapDir registry-ordering dir
              Specifies a search  directory,  dir,  for  CMaps  for  the  reg-
              istry-ordering  character  collection.   There  can  be multiple
              directories for a particular collection.  There are  no  default
              CMap directories.

       toUnicodeDir dir
              Specifies  a  search directory, dir, for ToUnicode CMaps.  There
              can be multiple ToUnicode directories.   There  are  no  default
              ToUnicode directories.

DISPLAY FONTS
       displayFontT1 PDF-font-name T1-file
              Maps  a  PDF  font, PDF-font-name, to a Type 1 font for display.
              The Type 1 font file, T1-file, should be a standard .pfa or .pfb
              file.

       displayFontTT PDF-font-name TT-file
              Maps  a PDF font, PDF-font-name, to a TrueType font for display.
              The TrueType font file, TT-file, should be a standard .ttf file.

       displayNamedCIDFontT1 PDF-font-name T1-file
              Maps a specific PDF CID (16-bit) font, PDF-font-name, to  a  CID
              font  (16-bit  PostScript  font),  for  display.   There  are no
              default CID font mappings.

       displayCIDFontTT registry-ordering TT-file
              Maps the registry-ordering character collection  to  a  (16-bit)
              TrueType  font,  for  display.  This mapping is used if the font
              name doesn't match any of the fonts declared with  displayNamed-
              CIDFont* commands.  There are no default CID font mappings.

       fontDir dir
              Specifies a search directory for external font files.  There can
              be multiple fontDir directories.  If a PDF file uses a font  but
              doesn't  embed  it,  these  directories  will  be searched for a
              matching font file.  These fonts are used by both xpdf (for dis-
              play)  and  pdftops (for embedding in the generated PostScript).
              Type 1 fonts must have a suffix of ".pfa", ".pfb", ".ps", or  no
              suffix at all.  TrueType fonts must have a ".ttf" suffix.  Other
              files in these  directories  will  be  ignored.   There  are  no
              default fontDir directories.

POSTSCRIPT CONTROL
       psPaperSize width(pts) height(pts)
              Sets the paper size for PostScript output.  The width and height
              parameters give the paper size in PostScript points (1  point  =
              1/72 inch).

       psPaperSize letter | legal | A4 | A3 | match
              Sets  the  paper  size for PostScript output to a standard size.
              The default paper size is set when xpdf and pdftops  are  built,
              typically to "letter" or "A4".  This can also be set to "match",
              which will set the paper size to match the size specified in the
              PDF file.

       psImageableArea llx lly urx ury
              Sets  the  imageable area for PostScript output.  The four inte-
              gers are the coordinates of the lower-left and upper-right  cor-
              ners of the imageable region, specified in points (with the ori-
              gin being the lower-left corner of the paper).  This defaults to
              the  full  paper  size;  the  psPaperSize  option will reset the
              imageable area coordinates.

       psCrop yes | no
              If set to "yes", PostScript output is  cropped  to  the  CropBox
              specified  in the PDF file; otherwise no cropping is done.  This
              defaults to "yes".

       psExpandSmaller yes | no
              If set to "yes", PDF pages smaller than the PostScript imageable
              area  are  expanded  to  fill the imageable area.  Otherwise, no
              scalling is done on smaller pages.  This defaults to "no".

       psShrinkLarger yes | no
              If set to yes, PDF pages larger than  the  PostScript  imageable
              area  are shrunk to fit the imageable area.  Otherwise, no scal-
              ing is done on larger pages.  This defaults to "yes".

       psCenter yes | no
              "level2".

       psFont PDF-font-name PS-font-name
              When the PDF-font-name font is used in a PDF file,  it  will  be
              translated to the PostScript font PS-font-name, which is assumed
              to be resident in the  printer.   Typically,  PDF-font-name  and
              PS-font-name  are  the same.  By default, only the Base-14 fonts
              are assumed to be resident.

       psNamedFont16 PDF-font-name wMode PS-font-name encoding
              When the 16-bit font PDF-font-name is used in a  PDF  file  with
              the  wMode  writing  mode  and is not embedded, the PS-font-name
              font is substituted for it.  The writing mode must be either 'H'
              for  horizontal  or  'V' for vertical.  The PS-font-name font is
              assumed to be resident in the printer and to use  the  specified
              encoding  (which must have been defined with the unicodeMap com-
              mand).

       psFont16 registry-ordering wMode PS-font-name encoding
              When a 16-bit font using the registry-ordering character collec-
              tion  and  wMode writing mode is not embedded and does not match
              any  of  the  fonts  declared  in  psNamedFont16  commands,  the
              PS-font-name  font is substituted for it.  The writing mode must
              be  either  'H'  for  horizontal  or  'V'  for  vertical.    The
              PS-font-name  font  is assumed to be resident in the printer and
              to use the specified writing mode and encoding (which must  have
              been defined with the unicodeMap command).

       psEmbedType1Fonts yes | no
              If  set to "no", prevents embedding of Type 1 fonts in generated
              PostScript.  This defaults to "yes".

       psEmbedTrueTypeFonts yes | no
              If set to "no", prevents embedding of TrueType fonts  in  gener-
              ated PostScript.  This defaults to "yes".

       psEmbedCIDTrueTypeFonts yes | no
              If set to "no", prevents embedding of CID TrueType fonts in gen-
              erated PostScript.  For Level 3 PostScript, this generates a CID
              font, for lower levels it generates a non-CID composite font.

       psEmbedCIDPostScriptFonts yes | no
              If  set  to  "no", prevents embedding of CID PostScript fonts in
              generated PostScript.  For Level 3 PostScript, this generates  a
              CID  font,  for  lower  levels  it generates a non-CID composite
              font.

       psPreload yes | no
              If set to "yes", PDF forms are converted to PS  procedures,  and
              image  data  is  preloaded.   This uses more memory in the Post-
              Script interpreter, but generates significantly smaller PS files
              in situations where, e.g., the same image is drawn on every page
              of a long document.  This defaults to "no".

              Commands  start  with  a '|' character; anything else is a file.
              If the file name or command contains spaces it must  be  quoted.
              This  defaults  to unset, which tells xpdf to generate a name of
              the form <file>.ps for a PDF file <file>.pdf.

       fontDir dir
              See the description above, in the DISPLAY FONTS section.

TEXT CONTROL
       textEncoding encoding-name
              Sets the encoding to use for text output.  (This can be overrid-
              den  with  the  "-enc"  switch on the command line.)  The encod-
              ing-name must  be  defined  with  the  unicodeMap  command  (see
              above).  This defaults to "Latin1".

       textEOL unix | dos | mac
              Sets  the  end-of-line  convention  to use for text output.  The
              options are:

                  unix = LF
                  dos  = CR+LF
                  mac  = CR

              (This can be overridden with the "-eol" switch  on  the  command
              line.)   The  default  value  is  based on the OS where xpdf and
              pdftotext were built.

       textPageBreaks yes | no
              If set to "yes", text extraction will insert page  breaks  (form
              feed characters) between pages.  This defaults to "yes".

       textKeepTinyChars yes | no
              If  set  to "yes", text extraction will keep all characters.  If
              set to "no", text extraction will discard tiny (smaller  than  3
              point)  characters  after  the  first  50000  per page, avoiding
              extremely slow run times for PDF files that use special fonts to
              do shading or cross-hatching.  This defaults to "no".

MISCELLANEOUS SETTINGS
       initialZoom percentage | page | width | height
              Sets  the  initial  zoom factor.  A number specifies a zoom per-
              centage, where 100 means 72 dpi.  You may also  specify  'page',
              to  fit  the  page  to the window size, 'width', to fit the page
              width to the window width, or 'height', to fit the  page  height
              to the window height.

       continuousView yes | no
              If  set to "yes", xpdf will start in continuous view mode, i.e.,
              with one vertical screoll bar  for  the  whole  document.   This
              defaults to "no".

       enableT1lib yes | no
              Enables  or  disables  use  of t1lib (a Type 1 font rasterizer).
              This is only relevant if the Xpdf tools were  built  with  t1lib
              the anti-aliasing control provided by the old "t1libControl" and
              "freetypeControl" options.)  This default to "yes".

       vectorAntialias yes | no
              Enables or disables anti-aliasing of vector graphics in the  PDF
              rasterizer.  This defaults to "yes".

       strokeAdjust yes | no
              Enables or disables stroke adjustment.  This defaults to "yes".

       screenType dispersed | clustered | stochasticClustered
              Sets  the halftone screen type, which will be used when generat-
              ing a monochrome (1-bit) bitmap.  The  three  options  are  dis-
              persed-dot  dithering, clustered-dot dithering (with a round dot
              and  45-degree  screen  angle),  and  stochastic   clustered-dot
              dithering.   By default, "stochasticClustered" is used for reso-
              lutions of 300 dpi and higher, and "dispersed" is used for reso-
              lutions lower then 300 dpi.

       screenSize integer
              Sets  the size of the (square) halftone screen threshold matrix.
              By default, this is 4 for dispersed-dot dithering, 10 for  clus-
              tered-dot   dithering,  and  100  for  stochastic  clustered-dot
              dithering.

       screenDotRadius integer
              Sets the halftone screen dot radius.  This  is  only  used  when
              screenType  is set to stochasticClustered, and it defaults to 2.
              In clustered-dot mode, the dot radius  is  half  of  the  screen
              size.  Dispersed-dot dithering doesn't have a dot radius.

       screenGamma float
              Sets the halftone screen gamma correction parameter.  Gamma val-
              ues greater than 1 make the output brighter; gamma  values  less
              than 1 make it darker.  The default value is 1.

       screenBlackThreshold float
              When  halftoning,  all values below this threshold are forced to
              solid black.  This parameter is a floating point value between 0
              (black) and 1 (white).  The default value is 0.

       screenWhiteThreshold float
              When  halftoning,  all values above this threshold are forced to
              solid white.  This parameter is a floating point value between 0
              (black) and 1 (white).  The default value is 1.

       urlCommand command
              Sets  the  command  executed  when you click on a URL link.  The
              string "%s" will be replaced with the  URL.   (See  the  example
              below.)  This has no default value.

       movieCommand command
              Sets  the command executed when you click on a movie annotation.
              The string "%s" will be replaced with the movie file name.  This
              index  =  character  code) for all unrecognized glyph names.  In
              some cases, this leads to usable text, and  in  other  cases  it
              leads  to  gibberish  -- there is no way for Xpdf to tell.  This
              defaults to "no".

       bind modifiers-key context command ...
              Add a key or mouse button binding.  Modifiers  can  be  zero  or
              more of:

                  shift-
                  ctrl-
                  alt-

              Key can be a regular ASCII character, or any one of:

                  space
                  tab
                  return
                  enter
                  backspace
                  insert
                  delete
                  home
                  end
                  pgup
                  pgdn
                  left / right / up / down        (arrow keys)
                  f1 .. f35                       (function keys)
                  mousePress1 .. mousePress7      (mouse buttons)
                  mouseRelease1 .. mouseRelease7  (mouse buttons)

              Context is either "any" or a comma-separated combination of:

                  fullScreen / window       (full screen mode on/off)
                  continuous / singlePage   (continuous mode on/off)
                  overLink / offLink        (mouse over link or not)
                  scrLockOn / scrLockOff    (scroll lock on/off)

              The  context  string  can  include  only one of each pair in the
              above list.

              Command is an Xpdf command (see  the  COMMANDS  section  of  the
              xpdf(1)  man page for details).  Multiple commands are separated
              by whitespace.

              The bind command replaces any existing binding, but only  if  it
              was defined for the exact same modifiers, key, and context.  All
              tokens (modifiers, key, context, commands) are case-sensitive.

              Example key bindings:

                  # bind ctrl-a in any context to the nextPage
                  # command
                  bind ctrl-a any nextPage

              "any"  context, and you want to create new key bindings for mul-
              tiple contexts).

       printCommands yes | no
              If set to "yes", drawing commands are printed  as  they're  exe-
              cuted (useful for debugging).  This defaults to "no".

       errQuiet yes | no
              If  set to "yes", this suppresses all error and warning messages
              from all of the Xpdf tools.  This defaults to "no".

              This is the default location for the  system-wide  configuration
              file.  Depending on build options, it may be placed elsewhere.

       $HOME/.xpdfrc
              This is the user's configuration file.  If it exists, it will be
              read in place of the system-wide file.
