NAME

       pdfxup - n-up PDF pages with reduced margins

SYNOPSIS

       pdfxup [OPTIONS] [FILE]

DESCRIPTION

       pdfxup  creates a PDF document where each page is obtained by combining several pages of a
       PDF file given as output. The important feature of pdfxup, compared to  similar  programs,
       is  that  it tries to compute the (global) bounding box of the input PDF file, in order to
       remove the margins and to keep the text only. Instead of having the font size divided by 2
       (for  the case of 2-up output), in some case you may end up with almost the same font size
       as in the original document (as is the case for a default 'article' document  produced  by
       LaTeX).

       pdfxup  uses  ghostscript for computing the maximal bounding box of (some of) the pages of
       the document, and then uses pdflatex (with graphicx package) in order to produce  the  new
       document.

OPTIONS

       pdfxup accepts numerous options. The most important ones are:

       -x n, --columns n
              sets the number of columns in the output file (default 2);

       -y n, --rows n
              sets the number of lines in the output file (default 1);

       -l (0|1), --landscape (0|1)
              sets orientation of paper (of final document) landscape;

       -b (0|1|le|se), --booklet (0|1|le|se)
              configure  for printing as a booklet. '1' is equivalent to 'le', which assumes that
              two-sided printing is in 'long-edge' mode (you turn from one page to the next along
              the long edge of the paper). 'se' is the 'short-edge' option;

       -o file, --output file
              name of output file;

       -i     ask before overwriting output file;

       -fw d, --framewidth d
              width of the frame around each page (default 0.4pt);

       -im d, --innermargins d
              inner margin between frame and page (default 5pt);

       -m d, --margins d
              margin of pages of the new document (default 5pt);

       -is d, --intspacess d
              space between different pages (default 1pt);

       -p a-b, --pages a-b
              only consider pages a to b of input document;

       -bb a-b, --pages a-b
              only consider pages a to b of input document for computing bounding box;

       -nobb a-b, --no-bb a-b
              omit pages a to b of input document from computation of bounding box;

       -g (0|1), --get-bb (0|1)
              only compute (and output) bounding box;

       -s x y W H, --set-bb x y W H
              set the bounding box to the given values;

       -d, --debug
              debug mode: keep intermediary files;

       -V [0-3], --verbose [0-3]
              select verbosity (default: 1);

       -q, --quiet
              run quietly (equiv. '-V=0')

       -v, --version
              print version number and exit;

       -h, --help
              print help message and exit.
