      Description

      I have had the occasion to produce a Master PDF file from other PDF files.

      In my particular case, it is a catalog that is distributed as a directory hierarchy of PDF files. The master pdf has file references to the other external files.

      The proposed tool would have to operate in two modes, I think. 1) you have an existing setup like I described above and the tool would create one PDF file that used embedded file streams instead of external links; 2) You have a directory/hierarchy of PDF files and you essentially create a Table of Contents from the existing files as the master PDF and embed the files as streams into the master.

      Other refinements could be added - something similiar to http://www.adobe.com/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/pdf_reference.pdf where there is some explanatory text in the main document and the embedded documents show up in a TOC.
