1. NAME

pdfopen, pdfclose - manual page for pdfopen 0.4: Acrobat Reader remote control

2. DESCRIPTION

pdfopen and

pdfclose can be used to control a running instance of Acrobat Reader.

pdfopen [--file <pdfname> ]

pdfclose [--file <pdfname> ]

Without argument, the

pdfopen program sends a "Ctrl-<-" to an existing X window with the name

Acrobat Reader, and "Alt-<-" to a window with the name

AdobeReader, if such windows exist.

pdfclose sends a "Ctrl-w" instead.

3. OPTIONS

  • --file <pdfname>
        With this argument,

pdfclose closes an existing window with the name <pdfname>, and

pdfopen opens a window with the name <pdfname> (starting a reader if necesary), or it reloads <pdfname> if it was already open.

  • --all,--page
        These arguments, accepted by Fabrice Popineau's Windows originals of

pdfopen and

pdfclose, are silently ignored.

4. AUTHORS

pdfopen and

pdfclose are written by Taco Hoekwater < >. This manpage has been written by Frank K\[:u]ster for Debian/GNU Linux and may be used, modified and/or distributed freely by anyone.
