Description shenzhuxi 2014-07-11 14:50:49 UTC
If I run "pdftoppm example.pdf images/a" without creating directory "images", where are the output files? 
There's no error display for such condition, and it seems working just without output.
Comment 1 Adrian Johnson 2014-07-11 20:35:25 UTC
You need to create the directory first. It is no different to:

 $ cat > images/a
 bash: images/a: No such file or directory

We probably should abort with an error if opening the output file fails.
Comment 2 Albert Astals Cid 2014-07-14 20:28:47 UTC
Agreed, an eror would make sense
