pdf270 — rotate the pages of pdf files
pdf270 [OPTION [OPTION] ...] [SRC [PAGESPEC] [SRC [PAGESPEC]] ...]
pdf270 rotates the pages of files in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) through 90 degrees (clockwise).
If no source PDF file ('SRC') is specified, input is from /dev/stdin. If 'PAGESPEC' is omitted, all pages are processed.
Source files are processed sequentially into a single output unless the '--batch' option is used, in which case they are processed separately.
pdf270 operates on one or more PDF files, and (either with the '--batch' option or with '--outfile DIR' where 'DIR' is a directory) the resulting files have the suffix 'rotated270' applied to their names by default. To change the suffix, use the '--suffix' option, for example
pdf270 --suffix '-turned' --batch myfile1.pdf myfile2.pdf
will result in files named 'myfile1-turned.pdf' and 'myfile2-turned.pdf'.
pdf270 is a simple wrapper for pdfjam, which is a front end to many of the capabilities of the pdfpages package for pdflatex. A working installation of pdflatex with the pdfpages package is required.
