# Tutorial :Picking pages from PDF document

### Question:

How can you pick pages from a PDF file?

Pseudo-code synopsis

pick-pages 1,2-69,70-73,100 example.pdf > put_to_new_file.pdf

### Solution:1

You're after pdftk.

### Solution:2

My best suggestion would be to try something with PDF toolkit - with Split and Merge, and a simple .bat file construction, something like that shouldn't be much hard.

### Solution:3

ghostscript, somethign like

gs -q -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dFirstPage=3 -dLastPage=3 -sOutputFile=fileout.pdf filein.pdf

### Solution:4

This is how I've done it with regular expressions. I counted the number of matches for the following regular expressions:

/Type\s*/Page[^s]

Case insensitive, by the way.

### Solution:5

Probably this is not a popular method, but this is one way. You can use pdflatex. For example, you can write a tex like:

\documentclass{book}\usepackage{pdfpages}\begin{document}  \includepdf[pages={1,2-10,11}]{pdf.pdf}\end{document}

You can write a small script to automize this.

### Solution:6

As part of my CAM::PDF Perl library on CPAN, I bundle a command-line utility deletepdfpage.pl that does the inverse of what you are asking for, with almost the exact same syntax:

deletepdfpage.pl original.pdf 74-99,101- target.pdf
