Extracting pages from PDF files under Linux

If you need to extract some pages from a PDF file under Linux, you can easily do it with pdftk:

pdftk A=infile.pdf cat ASP-EP output outfile.pdf


infile is the input PDF file

outfile is the output PDF file

SP – start page

EP – end page

For example to extract pages from 36 to 40 from file infile.pdf you can use:

pdftk A=infile.pdf cat A36-40 output outfile_p36-40.pdf

If you do not have pdftk installed you can install it with yum on RPM based distributions:

sudo yum install pdftk
