PDFtk (short for PDF Toolkit) is a cross-platform tool for manipulating Portable Document Format (PDF) documents. It comes in three versions: PDFtk Server (open source command-line tool), PDFtk Free (freeware) and PDFtk Pro (proprietary paid). [3]

PDFtk is a front end to an older version of the iText library (compiled to native code using GCJ), capable of splitting, merging, encrypting, decrypting, uncompressing, recompressing, and repairing PDFs. It can also be used to manipulate watermarks, metadata, and to fill PDF Forms with FDF Data (Forms Data Format) or XFDF Data (XML Form Data Format).[citation needed]
