psbook---rearrange pages in PostScript file into signatures

psbook [ -q ] [ -s\Larg{signature} ] 
       [ infile [ outfile ] ]

The program psbook, written by Angus Duggan, rearranges pages from a PostScript document into ``signatures'' for printing books or booklets, creating a new PostScript file. The input PostScript file should follow the Adobe Document Structuring Conventions.


Suppress printing the page numbers of the pages being rearranged (by default page numbers are printed).
Selects the size of signature which will be used. The signature size is the number of sides which will be folded and bound together; the number given should be a multiple of four. The default is to use one signature for the whole file. Extra blank sides will be added if the file does not contain a multiple of four pages.
