NAME

changepdfstring - Search and replace in PDF metadata

SYNOPSIS

 changepdfstring [options] infile.pdf search-str replace-str [outfile.pdf]
 Options:
   -o --order          preserve the internal PDF ordering for output
   -v --verbose        print diagnostic messages
   -h --help           verbose help message
   -V --version        print CAM::PDF version

DESCRIPTION

Searches through a PDF file's metadata for instances of "search-str" and inserts "replace-str". Note that this does not change the actual PDF page layout, but only interactive features, like forms and annotation. To change page layout strings, use instead changepagestring.
The "search-str" can be a literal string, or it can be a Perl regular expression by wrapping it in "regex(...)". For example:
  changepdfstring in.pdf 'regex(CAM-PDF-(\d.\d+))' 'version=$1' out.pdf
