[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.08, Package name: pdfjam-2.08, Maintainer: uebayasi

PDFjam is a small collection of shell scripts which provide a simple
interface to some of the functionality of the excellent pdfpages package
(by Andreas Matthias) for pdfLaTeX. At present the utilities available

+ pdfnup, which allows PDF files to be "n-upped" in roughly the way
that psnup does for PostScript files.

+ pdfjoin, which concatenates the pages of multiple PDF files together
into a single file

+ pdf90, which rotates the pages of one or more PDF files through 90
degrees (anti-clockwise).

Update to 2.08

2.08: fixed a bug in one of the tests
2.07: two other common graphics formats (JPG and PNG) are now explicitly
 allowed as input files (i.e., not only PDF files are allowed as inputs).
2.06: changed the pdfbook script to include --booklet true as the default
 behaviour (thanks to Julien Bossert for this good suggestion).
2.05: changes to the pdfbook script [the --right-edge-binding option is
 now redundant, and there's a new --short-edge option for binding along
 the short edge of pages instead of the long edge (thanks to Marco Pessotto
 for this)]. The --preamble option to pdfjam is enhanced, to allow multiple
 instances which get concatenated. Also various minor corrections to man
2.04: various minor improvements suggested by Debian maintainers (thanks
 to Eduard Bloch for these). The main things are: addition of the --version
 option; liberalisation of pdfjam to allow files in JPEG format to be
 specified as input, as well as PDF (I don't know why or if this might
 work! but some people have said it does); tidying of the man files; and
 more use of exec, to avoid forking.
2.03: fixed a bug which caused problems when your /bin/sh is the zsh shell;
 fixed a bug which prevented the correct representation of many UTF-8
 characters in pdfinfo data.

Update to 2.02

2.02: more progress on portability; introduced the beginnings of a suite
 of tests; improvements in the --keepinfo functionality, and to the
 treatment of file permissions (thanks to Marco Pessotto for these).

2.01: fixed a silly bug (thoughtless use of "test -a" in a couple of
 places) which seriously affected portability. [2010-04-13]

2.00: a major re-design. This is not completely backward-compatible with
 previous versions of the pdfnup, pdfjoin and pdf90 scripts. The
 differences in interface are few, though.

 In addition, various reported bugs have been fixed - many thanks to all
 those kind people who reported them (too numerous to list here!)

1.21: bug fixes, including security issues (many thanks to Eduard Bloch,
 Robert Buchholz and Martin Vaeth for helpful reports on vulnerabilities
 and for kindly contributing patches); the scripts now call for /bin/bash
 as interpreter; availability of mktemp is now also assumed; the
 Mac OS X droplets now look for pdflatex at (by default)
