How to Combine Multiple PDFs to Create a Multi-Page PDF

I’ll clarify this later, but for now I’ll quickly show you the following example commands. These should point a geek in the right direction.

Example 1

C:\Users\Elliot\Pictures>gswin32c -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOUTPUTFILE=CS377

HW5ElliotLee.pdf -dBATCH first.pdf second.pdf third.pdf

Example 2

C:\Users\Elliot\Pictures>gswin32c -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOUTPUTFILE=Stude

ntOrganizationFundingGuide.pdf -dBATCH StudentOrganizationFundingGuide1.pdf Stud

entOrganizationFundingGuide2.pdf

GhostScript GPL (gswin32c) is downloaded automatically as part of the installation process for CutePDF.

Ah, it’s described here:

One note: you don’t have to restart, at least in Windows Vista. Just open a new command prompt after setting the PATH environment variable.

  1. I would say that it is much more fulfilling to use a command-line command to combine PDFs, than to use a GUI from a well-known program. Using the command-line for such an activity makes one feel as if they are doing it themselves from a computer’s “garage”, if there was one.
