Join and split pdfs on the Mac

In Uncategorized on January 2, 2009 at 08:41

Just another one of the Mac’s awesome semi-hidden features: OS X has Python script that merges pdfs from the command line.

Located at “/System/Library/Automator/Combine PDF Pages.action/Contents/Resources”, the join.py script takes the pdf file names as input and produces a merged document!

Usage: ./join.py –o <file> <inputfile1> <inputfile2> [–append] [–shuffle] [–preview] [–verbose]

Macs rule! ๐Ÿ˜€

(I remember reading somewhere that UNIX has a similar script. Can anyone confirm/locate it?)
