pdfpun man page
pdfpun — n-up the pages of a pdf file, with right-to-left ordering
pdfpun SRC [PAGESPEC] --outfile FILENAME [OPTION [OPTION] ...]
pdfpun converts a file in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) to a "n-up" PDF file, that is, with multiple input pages per output page, for more economical printing etc. The pages are ordered right-to-left in the output. The default processing is to 2-up landscape output with no frame around pages, equivalent to using the options '--nup 2x1 --landscape --frame false'.
SRC must be a PDF file; '/dev/stdin' can be used for PDF input via a pipeline.
If PAGESPEC is omitted, all pages are processed (equivalent to '-' as PAGESPEC)
OPTION is any option of pdfjam(1) other than --batch.
pdfpun is a simple wrapper for pdfjam, which provides 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.
