NAME

       pdfjam-slides6up - put presentation slides onto 6-up pages

SYNOPSIS

       pdfjam-slides6up  [--pagenumbering  SWITCH]  [OPTION  [OPTION]  ...]  [SRC [PAGESPEC] [SRC
       [PAGESPEC]] ...]

DESCRIPTION

       pdfjam-slides6up converts PDF files whose pages are presentation slides (with  4:3  aspect
       ratio)  into  6-up  versions suitable for making a handout (for example).  By default, the
       6-up pages do not themselves have page numbers.

       To put page numbers on the  output  pages,  use  either  '--pagenumbering  true'  or,  for
       example,  '--pagenumbering  3.0cm'  to place the page numbers a bit lower on the page than
       the default position.  The value of 'SWITCH' must be either 'true', 'false' or a dimension
       that  can  be used by LateX. (To be precise, it's the value of the 'footskip' dimension in
       LaTeX; by default, pdfjam-slides6up sets  that  as  2.7cm,  which  works  pretty  well  in
       conjunction with both '--paper a4paper' and '--paper letterpaper'.)

       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.

       pdfjam-slides6up 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.

       pdfjam-slides6up  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
       '-6up'  applied  to  their  names  by  default.   To change the suffix, use the '--suffix'
       option, for example

              pdfjam-slides6up --suffix '2x3' --batch myslides1.pdf myslides2.pdf

       will result in files named 'myslides1-2x3.pdf' and 'myslides2-2x3.pdf'.

       By default a narrow line frame is printed around every slide.  This can be turned  off  if
       required by using the option '--frame false'.
