    Name        : mupdf
    Product     : Fedora 32
    Version     : 1.18.0
    Release     : 2.fc32
    URL         :
    Summary     : A lightweight PDF viewer and toolkit
    Description :
    MuPDF is a lightweight PDF viewer and toolkit written in portable C.
    The renderer in MuPDF is tailored for high quality anti-aliased
    graphics.  MuPDF renders text with metrics and spacing accurate to
    within fractions of a pixel for the highest fidelity in reproducing
    the look of a printed page on screen.
    MuPDF has a small footprint.  A binary that includes the standard
    Roman fonts is only one megabyte.  A build with full CJK support
    (including an Asian font) is approximately five megabytes.
    MuPDF has support for all non-interactive PDF 1.7 features, and the
    toolkit provides a simple API for accessing the internal structures of
    the PDF document.  Example code for navigating interactive links and
    bookmarks, encrypting PDF files, extracting fonts, images, and
    searchable text, and rendering pages to image files is provided.
