Adding attachments to a PDF-File


There’s an easy way to add attachments to an existing pdf-file. Just install the pdftk-package of your favourite linux-distribution und use it like followed:

pdftk input.pdf attach_files file1.tex file2.tex output new_doc.pdf

This command will use the existing input.pdf and attaches the existing files file1.tex and file2.tex. A new file called new_doc.pdf will be created which contains those 2 attachments.

You can attach any file you want! I use it to include the Latex-sources to the my pdf’s but there are many other reason’s to add attachments.
