       cuneiform - multi-language OCR system


       cuneiform  [--dotmatrix]  [--fax]  [--singlecolumn]  [-f format] [-l language] [-o output]


       Cuneiform is an OCR system. In addition to text recognition it also does  layout  analysis
       and text format recognition. Cuneiform supports several languages.


           Use recognition mode optimized for text printed with a dot matrix printer.

           Use recognition mode optimized for text that has been faxed.

           Disable page layout analysis and assumes that the image consists of only one column of

       -f format
           Select output format. The following formats are available: html  (HTML  format),  hocr
           (hOCR HTML format), native (native Cuneiform 2000), rtf (RTF format), smarttext (plain
           text with TeX paragraphs), text (plain text).  The default is plain text.

       -l language
           By default Cuneiform recognizes English text. To change the language use  the  command
           line switch -l followed by a language code (typically an ISO 639-2 three-letter code).
           The following languages are supported:

       -o output
           If you do not define an output file with the -o switch, Cuneiform writes the result to
           a file ‘cuneiform-out.format’. The file extension depends on your output format.


       Cuneiform  can process any single-page image that GraphicsMagick knows how to open. Please
       consult the gm(1) manual page for the comprehensive list of supported image formats.
