NAME
       pbmpage - create a one page test pattern for printing

SYNOPSIS
       pbmpage [-a4] test_pattern

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pbmpage	generates  a one page test pattern to print on a sheet of paper, for use in cali-
       brating a printer.  The test pattern in is PBM format.

       pbmpage produces an image intended for 600 dots per inch printer resolution.

       If you are printing on an HP PPA printer, you can convert the output of this program to	a
       stream that you can feed to the printer with pbmtoppa.

       Bear  in  mind that when you print the test pattern, you are testing not only the printer,
       but any converter or driver software along the printing path.  Any one of these components
       may adjust margins, crop the image, erase edges, and such.

       If,  due  to addition of margins, the printer refuses to print the image because it is too
       big, use pamcut to cut the right and bottom edges off the test pattern until it	is  small
       enough to print.

       test_pattern   is  the number of the test pattern to generate, as follows.  The default is
       1.

       1      A black on white grid ruled in numbers of pixels.  A black one pixel box is at  the
	      very edges of the paper.

	      Before Netpbm 10.18 (August 2003), the perimeter box was not there.

       2      A vertical line segment, one pixel wide, extending 1/2' up from the exact center of
	      the page.

       3      Two diagonal line segments, one starting at the upper left corner of the page,  the
	      other starting from the lower left corner of the page.  Both extend 1/2' toward the
	      center of the page at 45 degrees.

OPTIONS
       -a4    Generate an image for A4 (European) paper.  Without this option, pbmpage	generates
	      an image for US standard paper (8 1/2' wide x 11' high).
