If you are on dialup, fair warning: this IBM Redacted Memorandum in Support of its Motion for Summary Judgment on SCO's Contract Claims (SCO's First, Second, Third and Fourth Causes of Action) is so huge, the court split it into two parts and each PDF is huge. A grand total of 125 pages. IBM is serious about getting this done:
I haven't read it yet myself. So we'll do it together. And if anyone wants to split it up into smaller chunks for our friends in Europe who are on dialup, just send me the PDFs and I'll gladly put them up also.
Two kind souls split the two PDFs into smaller chunks. Rick Stanley mentioned that he used pdftk, an Open Source app that is part of Debian and probably lots of other distros.
Here you go then, thanks to Rick and the author of pdftk, Sid Steward:
Here's the description on Debian : If PDF is electronic paper, then pdftk is an electronic stapler-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:
- 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 PDF on metrics, including metadata and bookmarks
- Update PDF Metadata
- Attach Files to PDF Pages or the PDF Document
- Unpack PDF Attachments
- Burst a PDF document into single pages
- Uncompress and re-compress page streams
- Repair corrupted PDF (where possible)
And now it turns out both of our volunteers used pdftk. Here are the commands:
mkdir IBM-832; cd IBM-832
pdftk ../IBM-832-1.pdf burst output 'IBM-832-1-%02d.pdf'
pdftk ../IBM-832-2.pdf burst output 'IBM-832-2-%02d.pdf'
Now, wasn't that easy?
