[SOLVED]Combining multiple PDFs into one PDF?


Quote:
A search of subject returned three results with the most recent being from 2006. Maybe there's some newer developments since then.

I have several project files in PDF format and would like to combine like subjects into one PDF file. These are scanned images taken from old magazines (originals no longer available).

What current linux software is available for doing this? I really don't want to go with propitiatory S/W that costs a fortune!

Thanks, Tom
My appreciation to both of you gentlemen. Pdftk did just what I wanted.

Tom

You can try pdftk. Joining PDFs should be as easy as:
Code:
pdftk one.pdf two.pdf three.pdf four.pdf cat output newfile.pdf
