       pdffonts - Portable Document Format (PDF) font analyzer (version 3.03)


       pdffonts [options] [PDF-file]


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

       If PDF-file is '-', it reads the PDF file from stdin.

       The following information is listed for each font:

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

       type   the font type - see below for details

              the font encoding

       emb    "yes" if the font is embedded in the PDF file

       sub    "yes" if the font is a subset

       uni    "yes"  if  there  is an explicit "ToUnicode" map in the PDF file
              (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


       -f number
              Specifies the first page to analyze.

       -l number
              Specifies the last page to analyze.

       -subst List the substitute fonts that poppler will use for non embedded

       -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.

       -v     Print copyright and version information.

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