  Description     : print poster from PDF across multiple pages to glue together

You have a page as a PDF and you want to make a poster from it but you
only have a normal office printer, so you need to print the PDF across
multiple pages that you can glue together later. The resulting PDF will
contain a lossless version of the original, split across multiple pages.
In addition to a regular grid, it can also generate complex layouts that
make nearly optimal use of paper area to avoid paper waste.

In contrast to PosteRazor, the input is a PDF file and not a raster
image. This is especially important for posters, as scaling up raster
images will create pixelation artifacts.

In contrast to pdfposter there is a GUI that previews the result,
borders for glueing are taken into account, no superfluous empty pages
are produced and the complex layouter will save paper.
