NAME
       pbmtoepsi - convert a PBM image to an encapsulated PostScript style preview bitmap

SYNOPSIS
       pbmtoepsi [-dpi=N[xN]] [-bbonly] [pbmfile]

       All  options  can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.  You may use two hyphens
       instead of one.	You may separate an option name and its value with white space instead of
       an equals sign.

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       Reads  a  PBM image as input.  Produces an encapsulated Postscript style bitmap as output.
       The output is not a stand alone postscript file, it is only a preview bitmap, which can be
       included in an encapsulated PostScript file.

       pbmtoepsi  assumes the PBM input describes a whole output page, with one pixel on the page
       corresponding to one PBM pixel.	It detects white borders in the image and generates Post-
       script output that contains a Bounding Box statement to describe the location of the prin-
       cipal image (the image excluding the white borders) on the page and thus does not  include
       the borders in the raster part of the Postscript output.

       There is no epsitopbm tool - this transformation is one way.

OPTIONS
       -dpi=N[xN]

	      This option specifies the resolution in dots per inch of the
		   ultimate output device.  You must specify this because the
		   Bounding Box statement defines the bounding box in absolute
		   distances, not in pixels.  pbmtoepsi assumes in
		   calculating the bounding box that each PBM pixel will become one
		   dot on the output device, and applies your dpi
		   specification to calculate the size and location on the page of
		   the bounding box.

	      If you specify NxN, the first number is the
		   horizontal resolution and the second number is the vertical
		   resolution.	If you specify just a single number N, that is the
		   resolution in both directions.

	      The default is 72 dots per inch in both directions.

	      This option was new In Netpbm 10.3 (June 2002).  Before that,
		   pbmtoepsi always assumed 72 dots per inch in both directions.

       -bbonly
	      Only create a boundary box, don't fill it with the image.
