Ghostscript is a package that enables you to view or print PostScript and PDF files to other formats, or to convert those files to other formats. For example, you can compress the file, target it to an eBook reader, or encrypt it. See the Ghostscript documentation for more information. Using Ghostscript has its drawbacks, too. On top of that, some people may find typing long strings of options at the command line to be a bit of a chore.

To run it, you only need to specify at the command line the name of the output file and the files that you want to combine. To use joinPDF you type something like this:. JoinPDF compresses the output file it generates; while writing this article, I used with joinPDF to merge various combinations offiles of various sizes, and each time, the resulting PDF file was several kilobytes toseveral tens of kilobytes smaller than the total sizes of the source files. JoinPDF is a Java utility — to use it, you needversion 1.

It runs on any Linuxdistribution, or any other operating system that supports Java. The biggest advantage of joinPDF is its simplicity. There are no optionsto remember. Do you need a lot of features in the software that you use to combine your PDF files? Then consider pdfmeld. Of the three applications discussed in this article, pdfmeld is probably the most powerful and flexible. These options include adding bookmarks to a PDF file, encrypting the PDF file, and adding information like title, author name, and subject.

You can use it extract pages from a PDF file, rearrange the pages in a file, rotate pages, and even touch up text. In fact, pdfmeld packs many of the features of Adobe Acrobat in a package that weighs in at just over 1 MB. Like joinPDF, pdfmeld automatically compresses the resulting file. I found very little wrong with pdfmeld. This happens when an empty page contains contents information. This only happened twice, when I added a cover followed by a blank page to a particular document.

Some of the other tools available for merging PDF files include pfdtk , Multivalent , and pdcat. I briefly looked at pdftk and Multivalent pdcat is a commercial product , and found them to be solid applications. So, which utility comes out on top?

Just for its sheer number of features, you should give pdfmeld a serious look. Of course, being a long-time Ghostscript user I still have a soft spot for it.

But typing those long strings of options really wears me down after a while. And joinPDF is perfect if you want to get the job done quickly and easily. About Us. Sign in. Log into your account.
