       postdmd - PostScript translator for DMD bitmap files

       postdmd [-b num] [-c num] [-f] [-m num] [-n num] [-o list]
	    [-p mode] [-x num] [-y num] [file]...


       postdmd	translates  DMD bitmap files, as produced by dmdps, or files written in the Ninth
       Edition bitfile(9.5) format into PostScript and writes the results on the standard output.
       If no files are specified, or if - is one of the input files, the standard input is read.

       -b num	  Pack the bitmap in the output file using num byte patterns. A value of  0 turns
		  off all packing of the output file. By default, num is  6.

       -c num	  Print num copies of each page. By default only one copy is printed.

       -f	  Flip the sense of the bits in files before printing the bitmaps.

       -m num	  Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are scaled  uniformly  about
		  the origin, which by default is located at the center of each page. The default
		  magnification is  1.0.

       -n num	  Print num logical pages on each piece of paper, where num can be  any  positive
		  integer. By default num is set to  1.

       -o list	  Print  pages whose numbers are given in the comma-separated list. The list con-
		  tains single numbers N and ranges N1 - N2. A missing N1 means the  lowest  num-
		  bered  page, a missing N2 means the highest. The page range is an expression of
		  logical pages rather than physical sheets of paper. For  example,  if  you  are
		  printing two logical pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of 4, then two
		  sheets of paper would print, containing four page layouts. If you  specified	a
		  page range of 3-4, when requesting two logical pages to a sheet; then only page
		  3 and page 4 layouts would print, and they would appear on one  physical  sheet
		  of paper.

       -p mode	  Print  files	in either portrait or landscape mode. Only the first character of
		  mode is significant. The default mode is portrait.

       -x num	  Translate the origin num inches along the positive x axis. The default  coordi-
		  nate	system has the origin fixed at the center of the page, with positive x to
		  the right and positive y up the page. Positive num moves everything right.  The
		  default offset is  0 inches.

       -y num	  Translate  the  origin num inches along the positive y axis. Positive num moves
		  everything up the page. The default offset is  0.

       Only one bitmap is printed on each logical page, and each of the input files must  contain
       complete  descriptions  of  at  least one bitmap. Decreasing the pattern size using the -b
       option may help throughput on printers with  fast  processors  (such  as  PS-810s),  while
       increasing  the	pattern  size  will  often  be	the  right  move on older models (such as

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	   Successful completion.

       non-zero    An error occurred.
