Multivalent PDF Tools

The Multivalent PDF Tools is a suite of tools for manipulating PDF documents. It includes tools for compressing, uncompressing (for hand editing), obtaining metadata, splitting and merging, encrypting and decrypting, validating, imposition (aka n-up), making page images, extracting text, and full-text indexing (with Lucene). The compress tool shrinks the PDF 1.5 Reference from 13.5MB to 8MB in PDF 1.5/Acrobat 6 format and down to 5.1MB in a new proposed "Compact" format.
