       AMC-imprime - prints AMC multiple choice answer sheets to be distributed to the students


       auto-multiple-choice imprime --sujet subject.pdf --fich-nums numbers-file.txt --data data-dir --methode method [where-to-print-arguments...]


       The command prints selected copies from a AMC multiple choice answer sheet.

   What to print
       The following arguments describe what to print:

       --sujet subject.pdf
           sets the subject file (prepared by AMC-prepare(1)).

       --fich-nums numbers-file.txt
           gives a file where the numbers of the copies to be printed are written (one number per line). If this argument is not given, all the copies will be printed.

       --data data-dir
           gives the directory where data files are (see for example AMC-meptex(1)). The layout database in the data directory is used to know at which page of the subject file each copy begins and ends.

           asks to print separate answer sheets separately.

           asks to reorder the pages of each copy to get the separate answer sheet first.

   Where to print
       Several printing methods are currently defined:

       ·   with "--methode CUPS", prints to a CUPS printer. One print job is sent for each copy, allowing for example to use stapling. Use the following options with this method:

           --imprimante printer
               sets the CUPS printer name to print to.

           --options cups-options
               gives CUPS options, in the opt1=value1,opt2=value2,...  format.

       ·   with "--methode file", outputs the answer sheets to files (one for each copy).

           --output filename
               sets the filename for outputs. The '%e' sequence will be replaced by a 4-digits copy number. If filename does not contain '%e', the string '-%e.pdf' will be added at its end.

       ·   with "--methode command", will use a provided command for each copy.

           --print-command command
               gives the command to be used for printing. The command string will be split at each space character (even when using quotes...). The sequence '%f' will be replaced by a PDF filename (containing the copy to
               print), and '%e' will be replaced by the copy number.

   Other options
       Other available options:

       --extract-with command
           gives the command to use to extract pages from the PDF subject. Currently only pdftk and gs are available. The default value is pdftk, but gs will be used if the pdftk command is not installed.
