+building it from multple pages and/or printing it on large media.  It expects
+as input a PDF file, normally printing on a single page.  The output is again
+a PDF file, maybe containing multiple pages together building the poster.  The
+input page will be scaled to obtain the desired size.
+This is much like @command{poster} does for Postscript files, but working with
+PDF.  Since sometimes @command{poster} does not like your files converted from
+PDF.  Indeed @command{pdfposter} was inspired by @command{poster}.")
