       pdfbook  [--short-edge]  [OPTION  [OPTION]  ...]  [SRC  [PAGESPEC] [SRC
       [PAGESPEC]] ...]

DESCRIPTION
       pdfbook makes 2-up versions of PDF files, with  the  pages  ordered  as
       signatures.   The  default signature size is 4: to change this, use the
       option '--signature N', where N is a multiple of 4  (alternatively  use
       '--signature* N' for right-edge binding).

       The  default  is  to  make  pages  suitable for long-edge binding.  For
       short-edge binding, use '--short-edge' as the first argument; this will
       only work if the LaTeX package 'everyshi' is installed.

       The  default output page orientation is landscape.  To change this, use
       the '--no-landscape' option.

       By default, the option '--booklet true' is used (see the pdfpages  man-
       ual for details).  To turn this off, just specify '--booklet false'.

       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.

       pdfbook  is  a simple wrapper for pdfjam, which provides a front end to
       many of the capabilities of the pdfpages package for pdflatex.  A work-
       ing installation of pdflatex, with the pdfpages package, is required.

       pdfbook  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 '-book' applied to their names by
       default.  To change the suffix, use the '--suffix' option, for example

              pdfbook --suffix 'sig4' --batch myfile1.pdf myfile2.pdf

       will result in files named 'myfile1-sig4.pdf' and 'myfile2-sig4.pdf'.

       pdfbook is part of the "PDFjam" package of tools, whose homepage is  at
