Convert XML to PDF by Batch Using the Command Line


There is a dearth of tools for converting XML files to PDF and other universally readable formats. Seeking to address this issue, we came up with TotalXMLConverter, which is capable of converting XML files to PDF files, singularly or in batch, using either a GUI or the command line.

TotalXMLConverter is capable of converting convert XML to PDF and a wide array of other formats, including CSV, DOC, ODS, RTF, HTML, JPEG, TIFF, and SVG. Not only that, it is also capable of converting these other file formats to XML. TotalXMLConverterX, our XML PDF server converter, allows you to use our extensive and powerful XML PDF SDK and XML PDF library in your own applications.

You can call TotalXMLConverterX's XML to PDF command line from your applications using the following format: XMLConverterX.exe <source> <destination> <options> where source = the source file or folder, destination=the destination file or folder, and option includes the SDK's wide array of capabilities. These include

  • keeping the destination folder's structure the same as the source folder;
  • changing page settings, margins, and properties (including Table of Contents-related settings);
  • changing text and images on the header and footer;
  • compressing, encrypting, and signing the converted files.

You can also use Date/Time macros in the destination path. XMLConverterX can also create a .bat file that you can call the next time you need to perform the same conversion operation.

Thus, if you need a capable tool for the batch conversion of XML files to PDF files, look no further. You've found a reliable and capable one in TotalXMLConverterX. Download and install TotalXMLConverter on your PC now and see if it meets your requirements!

In addition to JSON to PDF, Total XML Converter supports a wide range of other formats. It comes inhandy when you have to convert XML, CSV or XLST files.
