Pdftk is a simple command line tool for doing everyday things with PDF documents. Use it to merge PDF documents, split PDF pages into a new document, decrypt input as necessary (password required), encrypt output as desired, fill PDF forms with FDF data and/or flatten forms, apply a background watermark, report on PDF metrics, update PDF metadata, attach files to PDF pages or the PDF document, unpack PDF attachments, burst a PDF document into single pages, decompress and re-compress page streams, and repair corrupted PDF files (where possible).

If PDF is electronic paper, then pdftk is an electronic staple-remover, hole-punch, binder, secret-decoder-ring, and X-Ray-glasses. Pdftk is a simple tool for doing everyday things with PDF documents. Keep one in the top drawer of your desktop and use it to:

Pdftk is very powerful as described as above, but Pdftk does not support multi-byte path, such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean and so on, it is a problem,
so I decided to do some job and now it supports multi-byte path. you can download the modification source code of pdftk.cc and Windows program.
precompiled version(windows 32) and source code(only pdftk.cc)
