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.

Options

-q
Suppress printing the page numbers of the pages being rearranged (by default page numbers are printed).
-ssignature
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.
