NAME

       calibrate_ppa - pnm2ppa calibration tool

SYNOPSIS

       calibrate_ppa [options]

DESCRIPTION

       Produces various PixMap (PPM) files used for calibrating pnm2ppa.

       This  manual  page  was  written  for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
       because the original program does not have a manual page.

NOTE

       The  size  of  a  full-page PixMap is 100MB!!.  These PixMaps should be
       piped directly to pnm2ppa, except in the case of the  -g option,  where
       the PixMap should be viewed or printed by other means.
