NAME

       bbox - prints out the bounding box of a rawppm or rawpbm image

SYNOPSIS

       bbox [ -l ] [ -r ] [ -h ] [ -V ] [ rawpbmfile ]

DESCRIPTION

       bbox  reads  a  rawppm  or  rawpbm  file  and prints out the bounding box of the image (as
       postscript comment and in postscript points, i.e. 1/72dpi) as well as the high  resolution
       bounding  box.  Input  is  read  from standard input if no filename is specified.  Example
       output:

              %%BoundingBox: 12 253 829 837
              %%HiResBoundingBox: 12.500000 253.000000 828.500000 837.00000

       bbox has only very limited memory requirements as it reads the input line by line and thus
       needs to store only one picture line in memory.

OPTIONS

       -h | --help
              Show summary of options.

       -V     Show version of program.

       -r     resolution of picture in dpi

       -l     loose bounding box (integer bounding box is expanded by 1 point, hires bounding box
              is expanded by 0.5 points)
