pdftk basic usage

@ -0,0 +1,46 @@
To merge (concatenate) pdfs:
$ pdftk inputs cat output newfile.pdf
To merge all pdfs:
$ pdftk *.pdf cat output newfile.pdf
To break a pdf into single page files:
$ pdftk input.pdf burst
To combine parts of two or more files, use handles:
$ pdftk A=firstfile.pdf B=secondfile.pdf cat A1-7 B1-5 A8 output newfile.pdf
========================================================================
To edit metadata is a multistep process:
1) Dump the pdf metadata:
$ pdftk input.pdf dump_data metadata.txt
2) Edit the metadata (Geany appears to work), adding:
InfoBegin
InfoKey: Author
InfoValue: Kenneth John Odle
InfoBegin
InfoKey: Title
InfoValue: Journal #42
(For "Title" enter whatever you want to see in the document's title bar as you read it.)
3) Update the metadata in the pdf file:
$ pdft input.pdf update_info metadata.txt output.pdf
Note that you must write to another file, as pdftk cannot overwrite the original file.
Thus, make the file you save the scan as different than what you want the final file to be named.
