: something like:

1. grab the pdfpages from CTAN.

2. Compile your document with pdfLaTeX in the normal way.

3. Make a document as given below:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[final]{pdfpages}

\begin{document}

\includepdf[firstpage=30, % the start page
lastpage=40]  % the end page

\end{document}

4. Compile this document with pdfLaTeX, you get a new pdf exactly like
the original with the marked pages alone.
