On Tue, 31 Jan 2012 Jim Diamond submitted an update to the xpdfopen package. Summary description: Commands to control PDF readers, under X11. License type: other-free Announcement text:
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.

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.
