I use graphicx to include pages of a PDF file. I want to know in LaTeX how many pages are in the file. How to do this?

  • @Mathew wouldn't a simplistic solution be to insert a counter variable just before the includegraphics and after and get the difference? – Yiannis Lazarides Jan 5 '11 at 13:19

pdfpages is obviously somehow able to get the number of pages of an included pdf. It does it with the pdftex primitive \pdflastximagepages. E.g.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
  \pdfximage{test.pdf}%
  \the\pdflastximagepages
\end{document}
  • What about LuaLaTeX and XeLaTeX? – Skillmon Jun 20 '18 at 13:06
