Projects / pdfposter


pdfposter can be used to create a large poster by building it from multple pages and/or printing it on large media. It expects as input a PDF file, normally printing on a single page. The output is again a PDF file, maybe containing multiple pages together, thus building the poster. The input page will be scaled to obtain the desired size. This is much like poster does for Postscript files, but works with PDF instead, since sometimes poster does not like your files converted from PDF. Indeed, pdfposter was inspired by poster.
