  1. You should change from optparse to docopt.

  2. @henrisalo This would make PDFiD (and pdf-parser) dependent on an external module. I want my pdf tools to run on default Python installations, without any additions.

  3. Excellent point.

  4. Nice tools! Do you plan to add them to git, mercurial or svn repo? As you have many updates and I plan to add them to the Matriux distro, it will be simpler for every one who needs/wants up to date versions 🙂

  5. @Tiger-222 Yes, I plan to setup my own git repo.

  6. Thank you for making great tools.

    I found one problem during the test.
    (source info : ver 0.2.1 2014/10/28)

    If the file name to be scanned contains the string “[“, “]”, it is not checked.

    For example
    C: \ python pdfid.py “c:[test]abcd.pdf”

    “[Test] abcd.pdf” file is not scanned.

    The return value of the “ExpandFilenameArguments” function is blank.
    (848 line of pdfid.py source code)

    I hope it gets fixed.

  7. This is normal behavior. pdfid supports filename wildcards. If you are not familiar with filename wildcards, read this: http://www.linfo.org/wildcard.html
