    When I specify split range like this:

    java tool.pdf.Split -page "1-3;5-7" test1.pdf

    I get this error:
    java.lang.IllegalStateException: must set valid password by now

    The first pdf is created correctly, but there is a 0 size pdf for the second range.

    Any help on this issue is greatly appreciated.

      It's hard to say what is happening on particular PDFs without looking at that PDF.  See multivalent.sourceforge.net/bugs.html

      I want to use Multivalent.jar: include it into my Java-Project an split pages.

      After some time I have come so far:

      [...]
      tool.pdf.Split split = tool.pdf.new Split(new File(pdfFile));
      String[] args = new String[3];
      args[0] = "-page";
      args[1] = "1;2;3;4;5;6";
      args[2] = pdfFile;
      split.main(args);
      [...]

      Astonishing enough (for me) that works, but:

      - that's probably not the way it should work
      - my java application exits after every call of split.main
      - I have to know the number of pages of the document
      - I cannot specify the location & name of the single PDF page files

      I cannot see another way to tell "tool.pdf.Split split" to do its job.
      Who can give any help?

      Thanks in advance.
