NAME ^

changepdfstring.pl - Search and replace in PDF metadata

SYNOPSIS ^

 changepdfstring.pl [options] infile.pdf search-str replace-str [outfile.pdf]

 Options:
   -o --order          preserve the internal PDF ordering for output
   -v --verbose        print diagnostic messages
   -h --help           verbose help message
   -V --version        print CAM::PDF version

DESCRIPTION ^

Searches through a PDF file's metadata for instances of search-str and inserts replace-str. Note that this does not change the actual PDF page layout, but only interactive features, like forms and annotation. To change page layout strings, use instead changepagestring.pl.

The search-str can be a literal string, or it can be a Perl regular expression by wrapping it in regex(...). For example:

  changepdfstring.pl in.pdf 'regex(CAM-PDF-(\d.\d+))' 'version=$1' out.pdf
