[clug] watermarking / stamping pdf files.

In the same way that the pre-built PDFLib library prints
"www.pdflib.com" in light grey on every page produced?
That would be very easy if you were producing the PDFs from
a non-PDF source (like source text and images).

Changing closed PDFs is quite a bit more difficult.

The proprietary PDI extenstion to PDFLib will let you open
up existing PDFs and add/change them, but that's not a freebie.

I wanted to merged PDF documents and found there wasn't a lot
out there. Though I guess if there was, there wouldn't be much
point in watermarking your PDFs anyway...  :o)

G'day all,

I'm looking for a solution to batch watermark/stamp pdf files from a
linux server.

If there's nothing out there we might be willing to contribute to
funding development of a GPL app for the purpose.

    Not yet is the spirit of that pristine valour
    extinct in you, when girt with steel and lofty flames
    once we fought against the empire of heaven.
    We were -- that I will not deny -- vanquished in that conflict:
    yet the great intention was not lacking in nobility.
    Something or other gave Him victory: to us remained
    the glory of a dauntless daring.
    And even if my troop fell thence vanquished,
    yet to have attempted a lofty enterprise is still a trophy.
