PHP | How to merge multiple PDFs into single file using pdftk

| By Webner

Using PDFtk we can merge multiple files into a single file using a command like this:

Example : pdftk file1 file2 output file3.

Sample code to accomplish the same using PHP is given below:

$outputPDFName = “mergeResult.pdf”;
$dir =”Files/GeneratedPDFs/”;
for($i =0;$i<sizeOf($arrayOfPDFFiles);$i++)
$multiplePDFs = $multiplePDFs.” “.$dir.$arrayOfPDFFiles[$i];
$command = 'pdftk '.$multiplePDFs .” output “.$dir.$outputName;

Note : For this code to work, please make sure pdftk is installed on your system.
