Coding Snack Guidelines / Re: Count Number of Pages in PDF Files

Perhaps a couple things to note when you are running the above script in a top-level directory containing 58,000+ PDF documents:

A. This will take a while :)

B. Prepare for cmd.exe to start consuming memory. We're up to 2.97 GB used by CMD.exe at the moment. I may have to let this run overnight instead.  :P

Thank you 4wd!!!


This greatly helped me. I'm now saving the script and binaries and dependencies into a zip for future use. I had also added a bit onto the batch to give me the file size in addition. Then when I open in Excel I'd convert it to kilobytes (as it is in bytes to begin with). Here is the script including file size:

REM PDF-Pages.cmd
@echo off
del output.txt
for /r %1 %%f in (*.pdf) do pdfinfo.exe -meta "%%f" >out.txt & echo "%%f", | tr.exe -d "\r\n" >>output.txt & find "Pages:" out.txt | tr.exe -d "\r\n\055\056\072[:alpha:][:space:]" >>output.txt & echo , | tr.exe -d "\r\n" >>output.txt & find "File size:" out.txt | tr.exe -d "\055\056\072[:space:][:alpha:]" >>output.txt & echo. >>output.txt
del out.txt
