Default pdfmerge and ghostscript-8.70-6.el5_7.6.x86_64 - Solution


It looks like pdfmerge is broken after the recent upgrade of gs to
ghostscript-8.70-6.el5_7.6.x86_64. Has anyone else had this problem. I
have just started trying to debug it. If any of you already have
solutions please let me know.

Here is a little more information :

I am running pdfmerge witten by F.B. Casse, but it looks like microtronyx.com no longer exists.
If any of you have any ideas I would sure appreciate your efforts. The
module I need to get repaired takes a hp pcl file and converts it to a
tif file, and then single pages of the tif file, and then converts each
single page tif file to a single page pdf file. pdfmerge then combines
all the pdf single page files into a multi-page pdf file.
Everything has worked until the recent update of ghostscript.

I really need this to work so if any of you know who is supporting
pdfmerge or have other ideas please help.

pdfmerge --help
This is pdfmerge4unix version 1.0-2. pdfmerge4unix is a command line utility program that merges pdf files in unix-based platforms

Syntax: pdfmerge file1.pdf file2.pdf... fileN.pdf outfile.pdf

--help displays this brief help; same as -h

I was able to bypass the use of pdfmerge with pdftk. pdftk does a pdf
merge without mishap. It looks to me that pdfmerge is now broken,

Hope this helps everyone else.
