Does any know a simple way to count the number of pages in a PDF file? I'm using teh RTEX plugin to generate a PDF via pdflatex with a defined start page number. I want to determine the final page number so I can start the next PDF in sequence. Thanks in advance for your help! -cal

I am using pdfbox for that, open source and simple to use if you are familiar with java, but comes with the cost of starting a JVM. There is also a comercial lib called PDFLib, which now has Ruby bindings and which works very well in general. Maybe there is an even simpler way, I also would like to know.
