[Gllug] 'padding' a print-file with extra lines

Does anyone know of a utility that will convert a print-file containing
form-feeds such that the converted output has no form-feeds but instead
has added blank lines to effectively 'pad' to N lines per 'page'.

This may seem an odd request,  but I need to take bog-standard print-files
with variable lines per page (delimited by form-feeds at arbitrary points)
and convert to files that are a multiple of N lines, such that when run through
a txt2pdf converter the resultant pdf pages align with the original source.
Hope that makes sense.......
