NAME

       ppmtopj - convert a portable pixmap to an HP PaintJet file

SYNOPSIS

       ppmtopj  [-gamma  val] [-xpos val] [-ypos val] [-back dark|lite] [-rle]
       [-center]                                                      [-render
       none|snap|bw|dither|diffuse|monodither|monodiffuse|clusterdither|monoclusterdither]
       [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads a portable pixmap as input and converts it into a format suitable
       to be printed by an HP PaintJet printer.

       For best results, the input file should be in 8-color RGB form; i.e. it
       should have only the 8 binary  combinations  of  full-on  and  full-off
       primaries.   You  could  get  this  by  sending  the input file through
       ppmquant -map with a map file such as:
           P3
           8 1
           255
           0 0 0      255 0 0    0 255 0    0 0 255
           255 255 0  255 0 255  0 255 255  255 255 255
       Or else you could use use ppmdither -red 2 -green 2 -blue 2.

OPTIONS

       -rle          Run length encode the image.  (This can result in  larger
                     images)

       -back         Enhance the foreground by indicating if the background is
                     light or dark compated to the foreground.

       -render alg   Use an internal rendering algorithm (default dither).

       -gamma int    Gamma correct the image using the integet parameter as  a
                     gamma (default 0).

       -center       Center the image to an 8.5 by 11 page

       -xpos pos     Move by pos pixels in the x direction.

       -ypos pos     Move by pos pixels in the y direction.

BUGS

       Most  of  the  options have not been tested because of the price of the
       paper.
