Compressing PDFs

Following Thomas’ advice I just added this to my .bash_profile: compresspdf() { tmpfile=$(mktemp /tmp/compresspdf.XXXXXX) cp -p "$1" $tmpfile gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dNOPAUSE -dQUIET -dBATCH -dPDFSETTINGS=/printer -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -sOutputFile="$tmpfile" "$1" mv -f $tmpfile "$1" } Just invoke it with: compresspdf filename
