pamstretch-gen - use pamstretch and pnmscale to scale by non-integer values SYNOPSIS
pamstretch-gen N [pnmfile] DESCRIPTION
pamstretch-gen is a program which uses pamstretch(1), pnmfile(1), and pnmscale(1) to smoothly scale up a PNM file by any ratio; it's like a more general version of pamstretch (hence the name). But other than the `any ratio' bit, it's much the same as pamstretch. :-) BUGS
Uses awk just to make some simple floating-point calculations, which is probably overkill. But using dc makes my head hurt. SEE ALSO

pamstretch - scale up a PNM or PAM image by interpolating between pixels. SYNOPSIS
pamstretch [-xscale=X] [-yscale=Y] [-blackedge] [-dropedge] N [infile] You can use the minimum unique abbreviation of the options. You can use two hyphens instead of one. You can separate an option name from its value with white space instead of an equals sign. DESCRIPTION
pamstretch scales up pictures by integer values, either vertically, horizontally, or both. pamstretch differs from pnmscale and pnmenlarge in that when it inserts the additional rows and columns, instead of making the new row or column a copy of its neighbor, pamstretch makes the new row or column an interpolation between its neighbors. In some images, this produces better looking output. To scale up to non-integer pixel sizes, e.g. 2.5, try pamstretch-gen(1) instead. Options let you select alternative methods of dealing with the right/bottom edges of the picture. Since the interpolation is done between the top-left corners of the scaled-up pixels, it's not obvious what to do with the right/bottom edges. The default behaviour is to scale those up without interpolation (more precisely, the right edge is only interpolated vertically, and the bottom edge is only interpolated horizontally), but there are two other possibilities, selected by the blackedge and dropedge options. PARAMETERS
The N parameter is the scale factor. It is valid only if you don't specify -xscale or -yscale. In that case, pamstretch scales in both dimensions and by the scale factor N. OPTIONS
-xscale=X This is the horizontal scale factor. If you don't specify this, but do specify a vertical scale factor, the horizontal scale factor is 1. -yscale=Y This is the vertical scale factor. If you don't specify this, but do specify a horizontal scale factor, the vertical scale factor is 1. -blackedge interpolate to black at right/bottom edges. -dropedge drop one (source) pixel at right/bottom edges. This is arguably more logical than the default behaviour, but it means producing out- put which is a slightly odd size. BUGS
Usually produces fairly ugly output for PBMs. For most PBM input you'll probably want to reduce the `noise' first using something like pnmnlfilt(1). SEE ALSO
