Merging PDF files

So I guess you are here because you are wondering how you can merge multiple PDF files into one single file, well youre in luck as the solution is quite simple.

First of all you need the program Ghostscript - It is available for linux via must repositories just apt-get, yum rpm or whatever your system uses and youre ready - If you're a windows user its the old fashioned and cumbersome download and install procedure you need to take, but hey if you're stuck with it thats your reality, anyhow here goes.

Linux example:

gs -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -q -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=Bachelor_thesis_20110216.pdf Bachelorthesiscoverpage.pdf titlepagefor_CDpart.pdf mainbodyforCD.pdf

Windows example:

gswin32 -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOUTPUTFILE=Bachelor_thesis_20110216.pdf Bachelorthesiscoverpage.pdf titlepagefor_CDpart.pdf mainbodyforCD.pdf

Ghostscript is availble at: http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/ and http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/

Have fun!!!
