-printer <string> : this parameter is an order to specify the printer name to process printing job.
-copies <int> : this parameter is designed to set number of copies to print
-paper <string> : this parameter can be used to specify paper size to printer
pdf : retrieve paper size from PDF file

others : user defined paper size
When printing local files and specify paper size, please refer to the following command line. And Parameter –orient can be help you set the printing orientations.
pdfprint.exe -printer "docPrint" -paper "612x792pt" -orient 1 C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printer "docPrint" -paper "612x792pt" -orient 2 C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printer "docPrint" -paper "11x14in" -pdforient 3 C:\input.pdf
Note:this software supports all the printable files as input and it only can work under Windows system both of 32-bit and 64-bit. And now there is only server version available for the single computer user. By the sever version, you can either let it work on single computer or make it work under the whole server. And by the command line version, you can use it easily together with C#, VB, VC and other applications.
