Identifying bookmarked PDF files Thu Mar 14, 2019 6:16 am • by Dellu
I am trying to identify PDF files that have bookmarks from the ones without bookmarks.

I find the script cpdf come closest to what I want to do. It has a feature that lists bookmarks.

If I run
Code: Select all
cpdf -list-bookmarks myfile.pdf
in the terminal, it generates two types of results:

(a) empty: if there is no bookmark
(b) list of bookmarks.

Now, I am trying to use grep the logs (results) and then output the result to Hazel.

Code: Select all
marks=$(cpdf -list-bookmarks "$1")
list=`grep -l "$marks"*.log`
if [ $? -eq 0 ]
    /bin/rm $list

Can you guys help me what went wrong?

What kind of error are you getting in Hazel? Have you tested the full script outside of Hazel? Is this script being used in a condition or action?
