I want to extract some pages from vary pdf files, then write them
with/witout rotation into one new pdf file. something likes this
[py]
import gfx
doc = gfx.open("pdf", r"Theory.pdf")
pdf = gfx.PDF()
for pagenr in [1,5,7]:
    page = doc.getPage(pagenr)

    if pagenr==1:
        page.rotate(90)                                         #for some pages

    pdf.startpage(page.width, page.height)
    page.render(pdf)
    pdf.endpage()
pdf.save("new pdf.pdf")
[/py]

I have tried pypdf, but it errs and exits on some of my pdfs(no, the
files have no password)

can someone suggest on such a lib for python on windows/or a pure C-dll?
(I mean pdf page->pdf, not pdf page->pic->pdf)

thanx
