pdfopen, pdfclose - manual page for pdfopen 0.4: Acrobat Reader remote control
2. DESCRIPTION ▲
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.
These arguments, accepted by Fabrice Popineau's Windows originals of
pdfclose, are silently ignored.
