Topic: Concatenating PDFs using APIs or utility programs
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 106160

Curious if any developers have had prior experience using commercially available APIs (e.g.: PDFlib, Adobe PDF SDK, etc.) or command-line utility programs (e.g.: pdcat, appendpdf, etc.) to concatenate multiple PDF files together. I am assessing a project wherein we would like to concatenate "banner" pages to the beginning and end of a user supplied PDF file for workflow/operations purposes and was curious if anyone had prior experience (good/bad/ugly) with any particular product. Our specific environment would be on Solaris from a C/C++ based server application but I am more interested in general comments about the specific tools accuracy, performance, stability and usability as most are available on a variety of platforms. Any comments are appreciated.
