-mode 0: default mode. When you do the conversion, this parameter can be omitted as it is default setting.
-mode 1: when you need to do quick conversion, please use value 1. This mode can be used to repair the existing PDF/A files, then you can do conversion easily without any mistake. This parameter can also convert scanned PDF files to PDF/A files quickly, but this mode can't embed the font data into PDF file, so it can't convert a PDF file which contain system fonts to PDF/A files properly.
-mode 2: this is full conversion mode, this mode does analyze everything is PDF file, and process everything in PDF file to comply with PDF/A format carefully.
