pdfconcat(1) program to concatenate several PDF files.


pdfconcat -o outfile.pdf input1.pdf [inputN.pdf ...]


This manual page documents briefly the pdfconcat command.

pdfconcat is a small and fast command-line utility written in ANSI C that can concatenate (merge) several PDF files into a long PDF document. External libraries are not required, only ANSI C functions are used. Several features of the output file are taken from the first input file only. For example, outlines (also known as hierarchical bookmarks) in subsequent input files are ignored. pdfconcat compresses its input a little bit by removing whitespace and unused file parts. This program has been tested on various huge PDFs downloaded from the Adobe web site, plus an 1200-pages long mathematics manual typeset by LaTeX, emitted by pdflatex, dvipdfm and `gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite', totalling 5981 pages in a single PDF file.
