Assuming you've got ghostscript installed on Unix or Windows:


import os, sys

for in_file in sys.argv[1:]:
    os.system("pdf2ps %s" % in_file)

cat_cmd = 'cat '
for in_file in sys.argv[1:]:
    cat_cmd  += in_file + ".ps "
cat_cmd += "> all.ps"

os.system("ps2pdf all.ps all.pdf")
os.system("rm -f all.ps")

for in_file in sys.argv[:1]:
    os.system("rm -f %i.ps" % in_file)
