NAME

       pbmtextps - render text into a bitmap via postscript

SYNOPSIS

       pbmtextps   [-font   fontfile]  [-fontsize  fontsize]  [-resolution  resolution]  [-stroke
       strokesize] [-verbose [text]

DESCRIPTION

       pbmtextps takes a single line of text from the command line and  renders  it  into  a  PBM
       image.

       The  image is cropped at the top and the right. It is not cropped at the left or bottom so
       that the text begins at the same position relative to the origin. You can use  pnmcrop  to
       crop it all the way.

OPTIONS

       -font  By  default,  pbmtextps  uses TimesRoman.  You can specify the font to use with the
              -font option. This is the name of any valid postscript font which is  installed  on
              your system.

       -fontsize
              Size  of  font  in  points.  See  the  -resolution option for information on how to
              interpret this size.

              Default is 24 points.

       -resolution
              Resolution in dots per inch of distance measurements pertaining  to  generation  of
              the  image. PBM images don't have any inherent resolution, so a distance such as "1
              inch" doesn't mean anything unless you separately specify  what  resolution  you're
              talking about. That's what this option does.

              In  particular,  the  meaning of the font size is determined by this resolution. If
              the font size is 24 points and the resolution is 150 dpi, then the font size is  50
              pixels.

              Default is 150 dpi.

       -stroke
              Width  of line to use for stroke font. There is no default stroke width because the
              letters are solid by default.

USAGE

       See pbmtext for usage examples.
