Yet Another Freeware PDF-Composer

YAFPC (Yet Another Free PDF-composer) can compose PDF documents from picture files and other PDF files, encrypt the created document, and send it to a given email address. YAFPC is designed to act as a command-line tool that combines with GhostScript to provide a network shared PDF printer which automatically adds letterheads, company-logos, watermarks, and Terms & Condition- pages to the printed documents, and then mails the document to the user who initiated the print job. It has a graphical user interface (GUI) for easy configuration and testing. Easy-to-use sample scripts for setting up a PDF-printer on Windows or Linux servers are included.
