NAME
       pdffonts - Portable Document Format (PDF) font analyzer (version 3.03)

SYNOPSIS
       pdffonts [options] [PDF-file]

DESCRIPTION
       Pdffonts  lists the fonts used in a Portable Document Format (PDF) file
       along with various information for each font.

       The following information is listed for each font:

       name   the font name, exactly as given in  the  PDF  file  (potentially
              including a subset prefix)

       type   the font type -- see below for details

       encoding
              the font encoding

       emb    "yes" if the font is embedded in the PDF file

       sub    "yes" if the font is a subset

       uni    "yes"  if  there  is an explicit "ToUnicode" map in the PDF file
              (the absence of a ToUnicode map doesn't  necessarily  mean  that
              the text can't be converted to Unicode)

       object ID
              the font dictionary object ID (number and generation)

       PDF files can contain the following types of fonts:

              Type 1
              Type 1C -- aka Compact Font Format (CFF)
              Type 3
              TrueType
              CID Type 0 -- 16-bit font with no specified type
              CID Type 0C -- 16-bit PostScript CFF font
              CID TrueType -- 16-bit TrueType font
