The pdfsplit package

[Tags:bsd3, program]

Reading two-column academic papers is awkward on the Kindle; you sort of have to choose between zooming way out, so that the text is unreadably small, or zooming in far enough that the text is readable, but mucking around with the arrow navigation keys and never quite centering the text on the page. This program takes two-column papers on standard US-letter size paper and splits them down the middle, producing a PDF with one page for each column. On the Kindle, this makes the text large enough to read while still allowing the convenient, built-in navigation mode.
