The Rotation Control Patch adds X resource, config file, and command line options to Xpdf that enable selectively setting the initial rotation of a pdf when it is opened.

The X resource option is xpdf.initialRotate, the config file option is initialRotate, and the command line option is -rotate. The possible rotation values are 0, 90, 180, and 270.

This patch was developed for and tested in Xpdf 3.03.

Note : If the patch command complains "Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!", just hit Enter or Return a couple of times to skip that part of the patch, and all should be well. The cause is a previous patch having already changed the application name appearing in the titlebar.
