callas pdfToolbox CLI



pdftoolbox-logo_cli-rgbcallas pdfToolbox CLI offers fast and easy integration of pdfToolbox technology on a wide range of platforms through a  command line interface. If you are looking for a productive way of adding PDF print preparation or repurposing to your web portal, internal production automation or document management system, callas pdfToolbox CLI features a vast range of well documented commands for preflight, fixing, document conversion, imposition and more.

Command-line processing

pdfToolbox CLI is a true command-line application available on Windows (32 and 64-bit), Linux (32 and 64-bit), Mac OS X, IBM AIX and Sun Solaris. Because it is totally self-sufficient (installation is as easy as unzipping the installation archive) and has been optimized for speed and reliability, it is the ideal PDF quality control and manipulation engine for web portals, internal product automation or document management system.
This command-line version of pdfToolbox is actually also the engine underneath pdfToolbox Server, so if you have pdfToolbox Server running you also have access to all power of pdfToolbox CLI.

Quality control and PDF manipulation

Of course pdfToolbox CLI is capable of running any pdfToolbox Desktop preflight profile on PDF files. During that process it provides a number of configurable options and allows generating any number of preflight reports. This makes it possible to perform a preflight and get for example a PDF report with annotations, a customizable PDF report generated from an HTML template and an XML report containing information that can be processed by a further automated process.
But next to preflight profiles, pdfToolbox CLI also has a long list of dedicated PDF actions that perform specific tasks on PDF files, including:

  • Various simple and more complex imposition tasks
  • Splitting and merging PDF files, duplicating pages
  • Creating PostScript and EPS files
  • Converting from office documents, images and PostScript/EPS to PDF
  • Saving images for each page in a PDF
  • Extracting content (text) and images from a PDF
  • Comparing two PDF files
  • Securing a PDF file with a password
  • …

For each of these tasks, pdfToolbox CLI has a dedicated command-line action that comes with a range of customizable options.

Versatility in usage

Even though pdfToolbox CLI is a command-line application, it can be used in an extremely flexible way. First of all the command-line application can be started multiple times in parallel (8 times for a standard license, an unlimited times for the unlimited version of the product) in order to perform quality control or fixing using preflight profiles or to run any of the myriad of PDF manipulation actions built-in to the application.
But pdfToolbox CLI can also be launched as a hot folder processing server, straight from the command-line. Or it can be launched using a dispatcher or satellite license to partake in load balancing across systems. In these modes it can be configured and controlled by a pdfToolbox Desktop running anywhere else in the network.

High-availability environments and load-balancing

Working with pdfToolbox CLI in environments where automation needs are complex or where high-availability of resources is crucial provides a number of benefits over the regular pdfToolbox Server product.
pdfToolbox CLI can be started as a “typed” satellite. These allow a categorization of satellites connected to a dispatcher so that files can be processed on the best-qualified satellite. The command-line version can also be used to monitor a running pdfToolbox Server or Dispatcher (in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly).
In critical environments, pdfToolbox CLI can be used to automatically address two different pdfToolbox Dispatchers so that results can be guaranteed even if one of the dispatchers would experience difficulties.

pdfToolbox for OEM customers

pdfToolbox is used by many OEM customers worldwide; they integrate pdfToolbox technology into their own workflows to accept PDFs that are being uploaded in a web application, to aggregate or impose, to soft proof print material, to let users view and modify PDF files and much more.
