PDF Spliter Program

I'm interested in locating a PDF splitting program that will allow a user to split a large PDF with multiple pages to other separate PDF's to store or use later for referencing. Is there a free application that is good at accomplishing this task or a program such as Adobe that will do the job? I welcome and appreciate everyone's feedback!

I'm a big fan of the PDF Toolkit (PDFtk) from PDF Labs, which can split, merge, and perform many other tasks with PDFs. PDFtk comes in both command line and GUI versions. The command line version is called PDFtk Server and may be downloaded here:

Don't be misled by "Server" in the name. I don't know why they called it that, but it's just an executable (pdftk.exe, with a supporting DLL, libiconv2.dll) that runs on "standard" Windows — it does not have to run on a "server" Windows. If you'd like to see the full syntax for the PDFtk Server command line and some usage examples, here are the links:

If you prefer a GUI (graphical) version of PDFtk to split the files, it is called PDFtk Free (another bad name, imo, since PDFtk Server is also free):

Here's what its opening screen looks like:

PDFtk Free
As you can see, there are several other features in the PDFtk Pro version for the extremely inexpensive price of $3.99:
