    Read/write metadata in PDF-file from shell

    Guido d'Arezzo

      Dear all,

      I have a bunch of PDF files and high quality meta-data in a database and would like to write the good metadata (title, author, copyright) into the PDFs.

      Do you know of a way to do this from a shell-script?

      I have 10.000 PDFs to process and get in a few new ones every day. I need to do this plus some flattening of the files (remove comments etc) before they go on the internet.


      My appologies in case this is banal, searching around haven't lead me to a solution.


      Many thanks,
