NAME

       ppmtopj - convert a portable pixmap to an HP PaintJet file

SYNOPSIS

       ppmtopj  [-gamma  val] [-xpos val] [-ypos val] [-back dark|lite] [-rle] [-center] [-render
       none|snap|bw|dither|diffuse|monodither|monodiffuse|clusterdither|monoclusterdither]
       [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads  a  portable pixmap as input and converts it into a format suitable to be printed by
       an HP PaintJet printer.

       For best results, the input file should be in 8-color RGB form; i.e. it should  have  only
       the  8  binary  combinations  of  full-on  and  full-off primaries.  You could get this by
       sending the input file through ppmquant -map with a map file such as:
           P3
           8 1
           255
           0 0 0      255 0 0    0 255 0    0 0 255
           255 255 0  255 0 255  0 255 255  255 255 255
       Or else you could use use ppmdither -red 2 -green 2 -blue 2.

OPTIONS

       -rle          Run length encode the image.  (This can result in larger images)

       -back         Enhance the foreground by indicating if the  background  is  light  or  dark
                     compated to the foreground.

       -render alg   Use an internal rendering algorithm (default dither).

       -gamma int    Gamma correct the image using the integet parameter as a gamma (default 0).

       -center       Center the image to an 8.5 by 11 page

       -xpos pos     Move by pos pixels in the x direction.

       -ypos pos     Move by pos pixels in the y direction.
