i'm always trying to do as most as possible via bash scripting, although i have to ask a lot of help here on the forum; (great thank you)

well i have a bash script for printing pdf's in a directory (2 pages per sheet, duplex, fit to page)

for file in *.pdf do lp -o media=a4 -o number-up=2 -o fit-to-page -o sides=two-sided-long-edge "$file" done

i got 2 questions:

1)how can i modify the script to print everything in a directory (say: work) (included all pdf's in directories under the directory work: for example /work/monday/ ) is it possible to first search all pdf files with the find command and then feed them into de existing script ? that way i could automate a lot of scripts

2)is it possible to print to a new pdf file; something like an automated pdftk; i suppose again with the find command coupled with the pdftk i could get there.

thanks guys and ladies
