pdfjam [OPTION [OPTION] ...] [SRC [PAGESPEC] [SRC [PAGESPEC]] ...]
pdfjam provides a front end to most capabilities of the "pdfpages" package (by Andreas Matthias) of pdflatex. Detailed information can be found via "pdfjam --help", and also in the web page mentioned below .
A working installation of pdflatex, with the pdfpages package, is required.
The pdfjam script is distributed as (the main) part of the pdfjam package. The homepage of pdfjam is at https://github.com/DavidFirth/pdfjam .
Configuration of the PDFjam utilities involves specifying the location of pdflatex, the location of temporary files, specification of default page size, etc. This is done in a block of lines near the top of the pdfjam script; settings made there are over-ridden by any that are found at a site-wide configuration file (at /etc/pdfjam.conf, /usr/share/etc/pdfjam.conf, /usr/local/share/pdfjam.conf, or /usr/local/etc/pdfjam.conf), which in turn are over-ridden by any that are found in a user-defaults file at ~/.pdfjam.conf.
