NAME

       choptest - HylaFAX page chopping test program

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/choptest [ options ] input.tif

DESCRIPTION

       choptest  is  a  program  for  testing  the  page chopping support in the HylaFAX software
       (specifically, in the faxq(8) program).  choptest analyzes a TIFF/F (TIFF  Class  F)  file
       with  1-D  MH-  or  2-D MR-encoded data and reports what the automatic page chopping logic
       would do  if  the  file  were  submitted  for  transmission.   Options  are  provided  for
       controlling  whether  choptest checks the last page or all pages of the document, and what
       whitespace threshold to use in deciding if a page should be chopped.

OPTIONS

       -a        Chop all pages in the document.  This is  equivalent  to  setting  the  PageChop
                 configuration  parameter  to  ``all''; c.f.  hylafax-config(5).  By default only
                 the last page of the document is considered.

       -t inches Set the minimum whitespace threshold that must be present on a page for it to be
                 chopped.   This  is equivalent to the PageChopThreshold configuration parameter;
                 c.f.  hylafax-config(5).  By default choptest requires that at least 3 inches of
                 trailing whitespace be present.

EXAMPLES

       The  following  shows  a multi-page, high-resolution document.  Each page has insufficient
       whitespace for it to be chopped.

       hyla% ./choptest -a ~/tiff/pics/faxix.tif
       Chop pages with >=3" of white space at the bottom.
       Don't chop, found 67 rows, need 588 rows
       Don't chop, found 67 rows, need 588 rows
       Don't chop, found 67 rows, need 588 rows
       Don't chop, found 53 rows, need 588 rows
       Don't chop, found 91 rows, need 588 rows
       Don't chop, found 99 rows, need 588 rows
       Don't chop, found 47 rows, need 588 rows
