Here is a free solution for us *ix users, that I used to scan the "KA680
CPU Module Technical Manual EK-KA680-TM-001":
Scan the doc to individual TIFFs. (300 dpi, B/W) I did this with
Impressario on my SGI Indogo2 with a HP ScanJet 4c + ADF.
Use the tools from libtiff (http://www.libtiff.org) and Ghostscript to
convert them:
tiffcp -c g4 *.tiff all.tiff
tiff2ps -a all.tiff all.ps
ps2pdf all.ps all.pdf
rm all.tiff all.ps
The G4 compression is better then bzip2 for this type of data. It
compressed 560 TIFFs with 1 MB each to a single 20 MB PDF. A tar.bz2 was
about 30 MB.
