Psbook uses Pstops to rearrange pages from a PostScript document into ‘signatures’ for printing books or booklets, creating a new PostScript file. The signature size is the number of sides which will be folded and bound together; the number given should be a multiple of four. Extra blank sides will be added if the file does not contain a multiple of four pages.

if OK,
if arguments or options are incorrect, or there is some other problem starting up,
if there is some problem during processing, typically an error reading or writing an input or output file.
