This is a command line tool to join PDF files. When you have to deal with joining several files it is much faster than using Adobe Acrobat. However, it will not join PDF files which have security enabled, it will generate an error.

The code is actually from the iText project. I added a shell script and created an installer. Hope people find it as useful as I did.

To install download and decompress the sit file. Then run the installer. To use the application, open a Terminal window and type joinPDF. The structure of the command is as follows:
  • joinPDF destfile file1
What's New
Version 2.3.1:
  • fixed error reported with extractPDF function
  • updated to use latest iText.jar

Works great, still needed in 10.4.x due to the advanced features and the ability to split pdfs, also easy to integrate into all kinds of project by using the command line features.

I was heartened to read that you could do this with Automator but deveral goes has yielded nothing but a noise and no joined pdf ( or reference to ). Is there somewhere one can go to find out more how to do this as there is nothing in the Help file in OS10.4.8.

Thanks.

i agree, automator works great and does combines pdf's with no problem, plus it gives you the option of compressing images, watermarking pdf, encrypting etc...

Maybe useful in OS X < 10.3, but in Tiger it's possible to make an automator mudule which does this in a very easy way : select PDFs within finder, control-click, select the automator mudule, obtain the joined PDF directly in Preview.
Not complicated, I did it. Only one minor difficulty : need to find a way to sort input PDFs - I just used alphabetical order, but creation date or other criteria are easy to implement.
