Hi!

I try to split long pdf.
I try:
Code:
pdftk old.pdf cat 1-18-end new.pdf
Error: Unexpected text in page range end, here:
   1
   Exiting.
   Acceptable keywords, for example: "even" or "odd".
   To rotate pages, use: "north" "south" "east"
       "west" "left" "right" or "down"
Errors encountered.  No output created.
Done.  Input errors, so no output created.
If I use:
Code:
pdftk old.pdf burst
than it split mi page by page but I like to split 20 to 40 pages per one split.

Thank you.

Sometime GUI may be useful to manipulate PDFs. Although there is no port for pdfshuffler (a 47k tarball) but it can be easily installed with a couple dependencies (py27-poppler and py27-pdf which are in ports).
