Using PDFxStream from the command line

The com.snowtide.pdf.Console class provides a common command-line interface to some of PDFxStream's capabilities, currently basic text and image extraction. Please refer to that class' API documentation (click above) for information on how to invoke it, and what its options are.

In general, we recommend using PDFxStream's provided command-line utility only for purposes of initial evaluation or very simple one-off jobs; the full PDFxStream API is far more capable and flexible, and can be very easily used to create custom command-line programs as needed.
