Sub_title: built in puppy 3.01

few days ago (December 6, 2012) Sid Stewart released latest pdftk version

pdftk 1.45
- http://www.pdflabs.com/docs/pdftk-version-history/

I built pdftk 1.45 in Puppy Linux 3.01
with gcc 4.1.2 and gcj 4.1.2
- http://dokupuppylinux.info/programs:pdf_manipulation#pdftk_145
- pdftk-1.45 - direct url
- dependencies libgcj.so.7

As far I know, pdftk made in puppy 3.01, is able to run fine in any higher puppy version, feel free to try

    *      You can now add or change a PDF’s bookmarks using update_info.
    *      Added record delimiters to dump_data output to help make parsing more reliable.
    *      The changes to dump_data output (described above) are also now required for the input to update_info.
    *      You can now use multi-character input handles. Prior versions were limited to a single character, imposing an arbitrary limitation on the number of input PDFs when using handles. Handles still must be all upper-case ASCII.
    *      Added means of referring to PDF pages in reverse order. By prefixing a page number with an r, it counts from the end of the document. For example, r1 is the last page, r2 is the next-to-last page, etc.
    *      Changed the syntax for page rotation. Instead of N, S, E, W, L, R and D, now use: north, south, east, west, left, right and down.
    *      Fixed a problem reading input PDF filenames that have non-ASCII characters on Windows 7.
    *      Fixed a stream parsing issue with troublesome PDFs that don’t strictly follow the PDF specification.

in addition to comnpiling latest pdftk release, I managed to build (thanks to tips contained in this page

a statically linked version (no dependencies needed) of

pdftk 1.41
- http://dokupuppylinux.info/programs:pdf_manipulation#pdftk_141_statically_linked
- pdftk 1.41 static direct download (2.8 MB upxed that runs hopefully in any puppy version without needing the HUGE dependency from libgcj), feel free to try

Thank you for your effort, Dingo.

I have been using Xpdf and pdftk for years, and they never fail to deliver! I have installed pdftk_1.41 in my dpups, but had to get a whole lot of deps to make it work. I look forward to test both your versions.

Not all people like to hear it, but I take a chance, and wish you a Merry Christmas.
