NAME

       g3toxwd - converts a Group 3 fax file into a displayable xwd file

SYNOPSIS

       g3toxwd  [-kludge]  [-reversebits]  [-scale N]  [-aspect N]  [-skiprows N] [-name xwdname]
       [g3file]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads a Group 3 fax file (raw or digifax) as input. If no  filename  is  given,  stdin  is
       used.  Produces a displayable xwd file as output.

OPTIONS

       -kludge
              Tells g3toxwd to skip the first lines for synchronisation.

       -reversebits
              Tells  g3toxwd  to  interpret  bits least-significant first, instead of the default
              most-significant first.  Apparently some fax modems do it one way and others do  it
              the other way.  If you get a whole bunch of "invalid code" messages, try using this
              flag.

       -scale N
              Scale the output to match the printer resolution and paper  size,  the  default  of
              0.58 will do in most cases.

       -aspect N
              Scale the output to match the printer resolution and paper size, the default of 1.0
              will do for high resolution faxes, 2.0 will do for low resolution faxes.

       -skiprows N
              N faxrows of the input file will be skipped.

       -name <name>
              The name <name> will be put in the output file for xwd.

       REFERENCES
              The standard for Group 3 fax is defined in CCITT Recommendation T.4.

BUGS

       Long fax files are not handled properly.  Output size fixed 1000x1350  pixels  defined  at
       compile time.  Please report bugs to chel@vangennip.nl
