Joining files

pdftk file1.pdf file2.pdf cat output newFile.pdf

cat is short for concatenate -- that is, link together, for those of us who speak plain English -- and output tells pdftk to write the combined PDFs to a new file.

Splitting files

The burst option breaks a PDF into multiple files -- one file for each page:

pdftk user_guide.pdf burst

Removing - reordering

pdftk myDocument.pdf cat 1-9 26-end output removedPages.pdf

Adding attachments

Pdftk can attach binary and text files to a PDF and you can specify what page of the PDF the attachment to appears on.

pdftk html_tidy.pdf attach_files command_ref.html to_page 24 output html_tidy_book.pdf
