AppendPDF and AppendPDF Pro – Command Collections

The -cmds option allows you to process a collection of files at one time

To process multiple commands quickly and efficiently, use the -cmds <filename> option. The file specified by -cmds, the commands file, should contain one or more single line commands. Each command is just like an ordinary AppendPDF or AppendPDF Pro command-line without the executable name. The commands file does not support wildcards in filenames. Below are examples of command line syntax when running with -cmds:

$ ./appendpdfapp -p -l logfile.txt -cmds CommandFile.txt
$ ./appendproapp -p -l logfile.txt -cmds CommandFile.txt

CommandFile.txt contains a list of commands for AppendPDF or AppendPDF Pro to process. This is an example of a CommandFile.txt file:

-p -iso32000 /appligent/appendpro/samples/parameters.txt
-p -iso32000 /appligent/appendpro/samples/paramsbasic.xml
-p -optimize /appligent/appendpro/samples/tutorial.txt
-p -w /appligent/appendpro/samples/paramscomplete.xml
