NAME
       escp2topbm - convert an ESC/P2 printer file to a PBM image

SYNOPSIS
       escp2topbm [printfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       escp2topbm  reads  an  ESC/P2 printer control stream as input.  It produces a PBM image as
       output.

       escp2topbm filters the raster graphic content from an Epson ESC/P2 printer control  stream
       and writes the image it would print as a standard (raw) PBM image.

       The  input is from the file named by the printfile argument, or from Standard Input if you
       don't specify printfile.  The output is to Standard Output.

       escp2topbm understands compression modes 0 (uncompressed) and 1 (RLE  compressed)  in  the
       Epson input stream.

OPTIONS
       none

HINTS
       As  escp2topbm  is  a  simple  program,	created mainly to test pbmtoescp2, there are some
       restrictions:

       o      escp2topbm looks only at "ESC." sequences and ignores all data outside these Escape
	      sequences.

       o      escp2topbm  assumes that only one raster graphic is in the printer stream.  If this
	      isn't true, the result is garbage.

       o      escp2topbm assumes that all "ESC."  sequences use the same width	value.	 If  this
	      isn't true, the result is garbage.
