Project description

What is pdfrecycle?

pdfrecycle creates a PDF file by composing pages from other PDF files. It can add PDF bookmarks and metadata, scale, rotate and crop pages and put multiple logical pages onto each physical sheet.

pdfrecycle uses a simple text file format to define the layout and what pages to include. From this input file pdfrecycle creates a LaTeX file and then runs pdflatex to produced the PDF file.


pdfrecycle is alpha software and should be expected to have some serious bugs. Use it at your own risk.

pdfrecycle is still under development and the input file format may change in the future.

Any feedback, suggestions or bugreports are welcome.
