XPDF is not a "unix pdf display program" - it is a LiveCode supported
external (like the revZip or revXML libraries) for opening, display, and
extracting content from PDFs. It can extract text or image content, all
or just portions, and a lot more. It is for LiveCode Business License
holders, so it is not available for the open source or Indy editions.

It does not write PDFs - you have LiveCode's built in print to PDF for
that. It just reads, displays, and extract content from PDFs. It is
supported on Windows and OSX. It is available in LC 8 and 9
