NAME

       choptest - HylaFAX page chopping test program

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/choptest [ options ] input.tif

DESCRIPTION

       choptest  is  a  program  for  testing the page chopping support in the
       HylaFAX software (specifically,  in  the  faxq(8)  program).   choptest
       analyzes  a  TIFF/F  (TIFF Class F) file with 1-D MH- or 2-D MR-encoded
       data and reports what the automatic page chopping logic would do if the
       file  were  submitted  for  transmission.   Options  are  provided  for
       controlling whether choptest checks the last page or all pages  of  the
       document,  and  what  whitespace threshold to use in deciding if a page
       should be chopped.

OPTIONS

       -a        Chop all pages  in  the  document.   This  is  equivalent  to
                 setting the PageChop configuration parameter to ‘‘all’’; c.f.
                 hylafax-config(5).  By default only  the  last  page  of  the
                 document is considered.

       -t inches Set  the minimum whitespace threshold that must be present on
                 a page for it to be  chopped.   This  is  equivalent  to  the
                 PageChopThreshold  configuration  parameter;  c.f.   hylafax-
                 config(5).  By default choptest  requires  that  at  least  3
                 inches of trailing whitespace be present.

EXAMPLES

       The  following shows a multi-page, high-resolution document.  Each page
       has insufficient whitespace for it to be chopped.

       hyla% ./choptest -a ~/tiff/pics/faxix.tif
       Chop pages with >=3" of white space at the bottom.
       Don’t chop, found 67 rows, need 588 rows
       Don’t chop, found 67 rows, need 588 rows
       Don’t chop, found 67 rows, need 588 rows
       Don’t chop, found 53 rows, need 588 rows
       Don’t chop, found 91 rows, need 588 rows
       Don’t chop, found 99 rows, need 588 rows
       Don’t chop, found 47 rows, need 588 rows
