Hi Hemant,

As it happens Ross Moore solved this one for me a few days back.
Unfortunately I just flushed all my emails so I can't show you
his - you may still have it.

Ross said to use pdfpages (its part of teTeX). If the file
you want to print is called file.pdf then make a new tex file with
the text

----------
%%pdflatex

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pdfpages}

\begin{document}

\includepdf[pages=-, nup=4]{file.pdf}

\end{document}
---------------

If its not in the same directory as file.pdf I guess you need a path
in the include pdf command. Run this through TeXShop - the output will
be 4 to a page.

I had to update the file

~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/graphics/pdftex.def

but it tells you where to get it from.

Michael
