Combining pdfs with on Ubuntu

O'Reilly nails this one:

To combine pages into one document, invoke pdftk like so:

pdftk < input PDF files> cat [< input PDF pages>] output < output PDF filename>

A couple of quick examples give you the flavor of it. Here is an example of combining the first page of in2.pdf, the even pages in in1.pdf, and then the odd pages of in1.pdf to create a new PDF named out.pdf:

pdftk A=in1.pdf B=in2.pdf cat B1 A1-endeven A1-endodd output out.pdf


My usage:

$ pdftk A=Desktop/ebb-flow-march-2011-receipt.pdf B=payhub-claim-2010_page3.pdf cat A1 B1 output Desktop/darling_rocks.pdf
