       By  default,  'file'  is  written in the MIFF image format.  To specify a particular image
       format, precede the filename with an image format name and  a  colon  (i.e.  ps:image)  or
       specify	the image type as the filename suffix (i.e. image.ps).	Specify 'file' as '-' for
       standard input or output.
