counting pages with acrobat

this is a bit off topic, but the acrobat newsgroups don't exactly appear to
be thriving.

anybody know if there's a way to create a macro so that acrobat will open
all pdf fiels in a folder and add a blank sheet to the very end. i can do
this manually, but i've got thousands of files to process. i've used
photoshop's ability to create a macro to batch process files, but acrobat
seems to lack this functionality.

tks in advance.

Acrobat Reader 7 does not have this ability built in. PDF manipulation is not
truly available in the command-line level/mode, and is thus not scriptable.
I have even searched the Web to confirm this. GhostView will not help here

As the format in question is too complex to be changed by appending text (it
is intended to be secure), you must take the route of bloatware. You could
use semi-automatic ways at best, but still must work through the GUI, I
suspect. If the PDF's are generated from TeX, you can easily batch-process
the TeX and then batch-compile all the TeX to get the PDF's you want.

Hope it helps,
