PDFOPT(1)                      Ghostscript Tools                     PDFOPT(1)



NAME
       pdfopt - Ghostscript PDF Optimizer

SYNOPSIS
       pdfopt [ options ] input.pdf output.pdf

DESCRIPTION
       pdfopt uses gs(1) to convert the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) file "input.pdf" to a so-called optimized
       form in "output.pdf".  Optimization puts the elements of the file into a more  linear  order  and  adds  "hint"
       pointers,  allowing  Adobe's  Acrobat(TM)  products  to  display individual pages of the file more quickly when
       accessing the file through a network.

       Note: input.pdf and output.pdf must not be the same.  If they are, the file will probably be destroyed.  pdfopt
       currently does not check for this.

FILES
       Run  "gs  -h"  to  find  the  location of Ghostscript documentation on your system, from which you can get more
       details.
