       fstopgm - convert a Usenix FaceSaver(tm) file into a portable graymap

       fstopgm [fsfile]

       Reads a Usenix FaceSaver(tm) file as input.  Produces a portable graymap as output.

       FaceSaver(tm)  files sometimes have rectangular pixels.	While fstopgm won't re-scale them
       into square pixels for you, it will give you the precise pnmscale command that will do the
       job.  Because of this, reading a FaceSaver(tm) image is a two-step process.  First you do:
	 fstopgm > /dev/null
       This  will tell you whether you need to use pnmscale.  Then use one of the following pipe-
	 fstopgm | pgmnorm
	 fstopgm | pnmscale -whatever | pgmnorm
       To go to PBM, you want something more like one of these:
	 fstopgm | pnmenlarge 3 | pgmnorm | pgmtopbm
	 fstopgm | pnmenlarge 3 | pnmscale <whatever> | pgmnorm | pgmtopbm
       You want to enlarge when going to a bitmap because otherwise  you  lose	information;  but
       enlarging by more than 3 does not look good.
