xpdfopen pro­vides pro­grams that al­low you to "re­motely" con­trol PDF read­ers un­der X11. It works with var­i­ous ver­sions of Acro­bat reader, xpdf and evince. This is most use­ful in sit­u­a­tions where you are pre­view­ing your out­put while edit­ing your source. This up­date adds an op­tion which at­tempts to re­store in­put fo­cus to the win­dow which has fo­cus when pdfopen is called.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/sup­port/xpdfopen . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/xpdfopen (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

xpdfopen – Com­mands to con­trol PDF read­ers, un­der X11

The com­mand-line pro­grams pdfopen and pdf­close al­low you to con­trol the X Win­dow Sys­tem ver­sion of Adobe's Acro­bat Reader from the com­mand line or from within a (shell) script. The pro­grams work with Acro­bat Reader 5, 7, 8 and 9 for Linux, xpdf and evince.

This ver­sion de­rives from one writ­ten by Fabrice Popineau for Mi­crosoft op­er­at­ing sys­tems.
