I don't know wip/pdftk, but this problem was interesting so I tryed to
write a solution. BTW I'm not a Perl coder, I only like to code in C and
Perl, so this script is probably horrible. For this Perl script you need
only wip/p5-PDF-Reuse.

For example we want to take the 2nd chapter in ``The pkgsrc guide'':

 $ ./ pkgsrc.pdf 16 18 > chapter2.pdf
So the syntax is:

 $ ./ <input.pdf> <first_page> <last_page> > <output.pdf>

This is the script:

#, a quick and dirty script to cut out some pages from a PDF
# Leonardo Taccari, leonardo1990[at]gmail[dot]com

use warnings;
use strict;
use PDF::Reuse;

# Read the options from the shell via @ARGV
my ($mypdf, $firstpage, $lastpage) = @ARGV;

# Open our final PDF and put it to STDOUT

# Get pages from $firstpage to $lastpage in our $mypdf
prDoc($mypdf, $firstpage, $lastpage);

# Close our PDF

HTH and good luck Jeremy. :)

Ciao, Leonardo
