       -mattecolor, -shared-memory, or -title.

       By default, the image format of  `file'  is  determined  by  its  magic
       number.   To  specify  a  particular image format, precede the filename
       with an image format name and a colon (i.e. ps:image)  or  specify  the
       image  type  as the filename suffix (i.e. image.ps).  Specify 'file' as
       '-' for standard input or output.
