Xpdf is an open source viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. (These are also sometimes also called 'Acrobat' files, from the name of Adobe's PDF software.) The Xpdf project also includes a PDF text extractor, PDF-to-PostScript converter, and various other utilities.

Xpdf runs under the X Window System on UNIX, VMS, and OS/2.

The non-X components (pdftops, pdftotext, etc.) also run on Win32 systems.

It should also run on pretty much any system with a decent C++ compiler.
