Re: [help-texinfo] Page size

    Hi, I'm trying to produce a PDF of the gprof.texi file in binutils-2.19
    using texi2pdf:

gprof.texi includes the explicit page size command "@smallbook" (line
40).  Remove it and rerun texi2pdf.  You should end up with a
letter-size pdf (or whatever is the default at your TeX installation).

You might also want to remove the "@setchapternewpage odd" on line 7 to
save some useless blank pages.

    And/or, are there any (reliable) tools for scaling pages so that
    they are US letter sized?

pdfjam ( has options for scaling, but
it doesn't really make sense to scale an arbitrary pdf to an arbitrary
size like letter; unless the original aspect was 8.5:11, the result
would look awful.

Hope this helps,
