If PDF is electronic paper, then pdftk is an electronic staple-remover, 
hole-punch, binder, secret-decoder-ring, and X-Ray-glasses. Pdftk is a 
useful tool for handling PDF documents. Every PDF user should have one 
in the top drawer of his/her desktop.

Use it to:
   * Merge PDF Documents
   * Split PDF Pages into a New Document
   * Decrypt Input as Necessary (Password Required)
   * Encrypt Output as Desired
   * Burst a PDF Document into Single Pages
   * Report on PDF Metrics, including Metadata and Bookmarks
   * Uncompress and Re-Compress Page Streams
   * Repair Corrupted PDF (Where Possible)

Pdftk is also an example of how to use a library of Java classes in a 
stand-alone C++ program. Specifically, it demonstrates how GCJ and CNI 
allows C++ code to use iText's (itext-paulo) Java classes.

This release includes a downloadable Windows program as well as complete 
source code.

Please visit our site for more details and for downloads:

Pdftk is free software distributed under the GPL.  Thank you for your 
feedback and support.
