It is not big deal to create script which will print set of pages. But there
are small problem:
formatting parameters ( quality, page layout and size, etc.) are used when
printing to file.
In addition, fonts, styles, etc. will be lost, so this format will be
useless in case of modification needs.
Perfect example is Letter size(USA) versus A4(Europe).
