       djvups - Convert DjVu documents to PostScript.


       djvups  [options] [djvufile] [outputfile]


       This program decodes DjVu file djvufile, and generates a PostScript file named outputfile.
       The DjVu data is read from the standard input when argument djvufile is not  specified  or
       when  it is equal to a single dash.  Similarly, the output data is written to the standard
       output when argument outputfile is not specified or equal to a single dash.

       PostScript printers have various capabilities.  Investigate options -level and  -gray  for
       obtaining the best results.


       -help  Prints the list of recognized options.

              Displays a progress bar.

              Specify  the  document  pages  to  be  converted.   The page specification pagespec
              contains one or more comma-separated page ranges.  A page range is  either  a  page
              number, or two page numbers separated by a dash.  Specification 1-10, for instance,
              prints pages 1 to 10.  Specification 1,3,99999-4 prints pages 1 and 3, followed  by
              all the document pages in reverse order up to page 4.

              Produce a PostScript file.  This is the default.

              Produce  an  Encapsulated  PostScript  file.   Encapsulated  PostScript  files  are
              suitable for embedding images into other documents.  Encapsulated  PostScript  file
              can  only contain a single page. Setting this option overrides the options -copies,
              -orientation, -zoom, -cropmarks, and -booklet.

              Specify the number of copies to print.

              Specify whether pages should be printed using  the  auto,  portrait,  or  landscape

              Specify  how  pages  should  be  decoded.  The default mode, color, renders all the
              layers of the DjVu documents.  Mode black only renders the foreground  layer  mask.
              This  mode  does  not  work  with  DjVuPhoto  images  because  these  files have no
              foreground layer mask.  Modes foreground and background only render the  foreground
              layer or the background layer of a DjVuDocument image.

              Specify a zoom factor zoomspec.  The default zoom factor, auto, scales the image to
              fit the page.  Argument zoomspec  also  can  be  a  number  in  range  25  to  2400
              representing  a  magnification  percentage  relative  to  the  original size of the

              Specifying yes causes the  generation  of  a  thin  gray  border  representing  the
              boundaries of the document pages.  The default is no.

              Specifying yes causes the generation of crop marks indicating where pages should be
              cut.  The default is no.

              Select the language level  of  the  generated  PostScript.   languagelevel.   Valid
              language  levels  are  1,  2,  and  3.   Level 3 produces the most compact and fast
              printing PostScript files.  Some of these  files  however  require  a  very  modern
              printer.   Level 2 is the default value.  The generated PostScript files are almost
              as compact and work with all but the oldest PostScript printers.  Level  1  can  be
              used as a last resort option.

              The  default  value,  yes,  generates a color PostScript file.  Specifying value no
              converts the image to gray scale.  The resulting PostScript  file  is  smaller  and
              marginally more portable.

       -gray  This option is equivalent to option -color=no and is provided for convenience.

              The default value, yes, generates a PostScript file using device independent colors
              in compliance with the sRGB specification.  Modern  printers  then  produce  colors
              that  match  the  original  as  well  as possible.  Specifying value no generates a
              PostScript file using device dependent colors.  This is sometimes useful with older
              printers.  You can then use option -gamma to tune the output colors.

              Specify  a  gamma  correction  factor  for  the device dependent PostScript colors.
              Argument gammaspec must be in range 0.3 to 5.0.  Gamma correction normally pertains
              to  cathodic  screens only.  It gets meaningful for printers because several models
              interpret device dependent RGB colors by emulating the color response of a cathodic

              Turns the booklet printing mode on.  The booklet mode prints two pages on each side
              in a way suitable for making a booklet by folding the sheets. Option opt  can  take
              values  no for disabling the booklet mode, yes for enabling the recto/verso booklet
              mode, and recto or verso to print only one side of each sheet.

              Specifies the maximal number of pages per booklet.  A single printout might then be
              composed of several booklets. Argument max is rounded up to the next multiple of 4.
              Specifying 0 sets no maximal number of pages and ensures  that  the  printout  will
              produce a single booklet.  This is the default.

              Specifies  a  positive  or  negative  offset  applied   to the verso of each sheet.
              Argument align is expressed in points (one point is 1/72th of  an  inch,  or  0.352
              millimeter)  This  is  useful  with  certain printers to ensure that both recto and
              verso are properly aligned.  The default value is of course 0.

              Specifies the extra margin left  between both pages on a single  sheet.   The  base
              value  base  is  expressed  in  points  (one  point  is 1/72th of an inch, or 0.352
              millimeter). This margin  is  incremented  for  each  outer  sheet  by  value  incr
              expressed in millipoints. The default value is 18+200.
