The documentation tells (in German):

	Zusammenfassung von mehreren Seiten einer PDF-Datei auf einer Seite.
	pdfnup original.pdf --outfile ausgabe.pdf --nup 2x2 --column true -- 
paper a4paper --scale 0.95 --offset "1.0cm 1.0cm"

Pdfnup is not meant to work on *TeX* files.

I don't know whether it works for every printer, but I have set up my  
print dialogue with options to print 2 or 4 pages on one sheet of  
paper. This seems to be far less disastrous ...

Now that your TeX file is converted to PDF you might have two  
options: open it in a PDF viewer, select the text you might see, and  
copy and paste it if it seems useful. Or you can use ps2ascii on the  
command line – with an option for disaster.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
