9. Working with Pdftk

Chapter 9. Working with Pdftk

Pdftk is a multiplatform command-line tool built on the iText library (which is described in iText for Java and C#). It has facilities for merging, splitting, and stamping documents, and for setting and reading metadata.

Obtaining Pdftk

Pdftk is an open source program, licensed under the GPL. Binary packages for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X, and source code for all platforms can be found at PDF Labs.

The creator of pdftk, Sid Steward, is also the author of O’Reilly’s PDF Hacks—a collection of tools and tips for working with PDF.
