  Description     : command-line PDF transformation software

QPDF is a program that does structural, content-preserving
transformations on PDF files.  It could have been called something
like pdf-to-pdf.  It also provides many useful capabilities to
developers of PDF-producing software or for people who just want to
look at the innards of a PDF file to learn more about how they work.

QPDF offers many capabilities such as linearization (web
optimization), encryption (password protection), and decryption of PDF
files as well as changing whether or not PDF files use object streams
(compressed objects).  It also has facilities for checking PDF files
for structural errors, inspecting stream contents, or extracting
objects from PDF files.  QPDF is not PDF content creation software --
it does not have the capability to create PDF files from scratch.
