I did a search and nothing really seemed to be directly related to this question. Is it possible, using Python, to merge seperate PDF files?
Assuming so, I need to extend this a little further. I am hoping to loop through folders in a directory and repeat this procedure.
And I may be pushing my luck, but is it possible to exclude a page that is contained in of the PDFs (my report generation always creates an extra blank page).
A Pure-Python library built as a PDF toolkit. It is capable of:
* splitting documents page by page,
* merging documents page by page,
(and much more)
An example of two pdf-files being merged into a single file with pyPdf:
# Loading the pyPdf Library from pyPdf import PdfFileWriter, PdfFileReader # Creating a routine that appends files to the output file def append_pdf(input,output): [output.addPage(input.getPage(page_num)) for page_num in range(input.numPages)] # Creating an object where pdf pages are appended to output = PdfFileWriter() # Appending two pdf-pages from two different files append_pdf(PdfFileReader(open("SamplePage1.pdf","rb")),output) append_pdf(PdfFileReader(open("SamplePage2.pdf","rb")),output) # Writing all the collected pages to a file output.write(open("CombinedPages.pdf","wb"))
