NAME

pdfflip - rotate the pages of pdf files  

SYNOPSIS

pdfflip [OPTION [OPTION] ...] [SRC [PAGESPEC] [SRC [PAGESPEC]] ...]

 

DESCRIPTION

pdfflip reflects (left-right) the pages of files in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).

If no source PDF file ('SRC') is specified, input is from /dev/stdin. If 'PAGESPEC' is omitted, all pages are processed.

Source files are processed sequentially into a single output unless the '--batch' option is used, in which case they are processed separately.

pdfflip operates on one or more PDF files, and (either with the '--batch' option or with '--outfile DIR' where 'DIR' is a directory) the resulting files have the suffix '-flipped' applied to their names by default. To change the suffix, use the '--suffix' option, for example

pdfflip --suffix 'reflected' --batch myfile1.pdf myfile2.pdf

will result in files named 'myfile1-reflected.pdf' and 'myfile2-reflected.pdf'.

pdfflip is a simple wrapper for pdfjam, which is a front end to many of the capabilities of the pdfpages package for pdflatex. A working installation of pdflatex with the pdfpages package is required.

pdfflip is part of the "PDFjam" package of tools, whose homepage is at http://go.warwick.ac.uk/pdfjam.
