[vox-tech] scaling PDF with lp



Greetings,

I have some PDF files which were created without respecting the target 
printer's hardware-enforced margins of 5mm. I have computed an approximate 
scaling ratio 0.91 , used : lp -o scaling=91 ...

Is there a better way to scale PDF files to fit within a printer's margins? I 
am aware of the psresize command, which works well most of the time- but a 
more robust approach would be nice when the source ps|pdf file is technically 
at letterpaper size, just outside of the allowable margins.

cheers,
