Hi Alain
 
Thanks for the script etc.  I overlooked your advice to
(adapt the URLs for your language)
at first and was amused when I looked at the pdfs and saw they were all in French.  But a few more clicks and that was fixed.
 
It would be good to get rid of the superfluous wiki stuff but none of the open pdf editing packages seem up to that.  I can probably do it in Adobe Acrobat and may download the trial version to give it a try when I get some time, but for now the merged pdf package is good.
 
Nicholas Robinson said he thought wkhtmltopdf does a nicer job than printing to pdf and I think that is correct.
 
Thanks again everyone.
Chris

Humm ... not so trivial, because you must do it for each page of the documentation ...

Or there is a trick that I don't know ...

Each *html* page, but ISTM that the manual has been organized so that each html page is equivalent to a book's *chapter*.

That seriously cuts down on the amount of manually printing to PDF.
A solution for Linux:
install the tools wkhtmltopdf and pdfmod

French comment page for wkhtmltopdf
http://memo-linux.com/comment-convertir-du-html-vers-un-document-pdf-avec-wkhtmltopdf/

After, create a simple script like this (adapt the URLs for your language)

#!/bin/bash

mkdir manual
cd manual
