I have a RTL (right-to-left) pdf document and want to print it in booklet format so that it could be printed double sided and binded as a book. There is simple solutions for LTR (left-to-right) documents, such as pdfbook:

pdfbook inputfile.pdf

above simple command will create a new pdf file named inputfile-book.pdf that could be printed double sided (duples printed "Long edge").

Is there a similar solution for right to left documents?
