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.
