       g32pbm - convert a Group 3 fax file into a portable bitmap

       g32pbm [-reversebits] [-stretch] [g3file]

       Reads  a  Group	3  fax	file (raw or digifax) as input. If no filename is given, stdin is
       used.  Produces a portable bitmap as output.

       -r     Tells g32pbm to interpret bits least-significant	first,	instead  of  the  default
	      most-significant	first ("-reversebits").  Some fax modems do it one way and others
	      do it the other way. If you get a whole bunch of "invalid  code"	messages  (nearly
	      one per line), try using this flag.

       -s     Double  each  horizontal row of the fax file in the pbm file ("-stretch)".  You can
	      use this to adjust the aspect ratio of a "normal resolution" fax file to match that
	      of  a  "fine  resolution"  fax file.  This might not seem like it belongs here, but
	      it's much faster than using pnmscale|pgmtopbm later.  -s is activated automatically
	      if  the  file  is  specified  on	the command line and its name starts with "fn..."

	      Instead of a portable bitmap (PBM), output HP laserjet files, suitable  for  direct
	      printing on a HP laserjet or desjket.

       -d <dpi>
	      Scale  output  to  <dpi>	dots  per  inch before printing. Normal FAX resolution is
	      204x196 dpi (fine mode), or 204x98 dpi (normal mode). In	LaerJet  mode,	only  the
	      values 75, 150 and 300 are allowed for <dpi>.

       -t     turn  image  by 90 degrees clockwise. Multiple -t commands increase angle, that is,
	      -t -t will turn it upside down, and so on.

       -?     Print a short command syntax.

       The standard for Group 3 fax is defined in CCITT Recommendation T.4.

       g32pbm could be smarter about the image width, at the moment, the maximum  width  is  1728
       pixels, and the maximum height is 4300 lines. Everything bigger is just cut off.

       Only 'raw' pbm files are created.

       Scaling is too slow.

       Turning is too slow (and not yet fully implemented either).

       g32pbm  is Copyright (C) 1993 by Gert Doering, <gert@greenie.muc.de>. It is similar to the
       g3topbm program in Jef Poskanzers pbmplus package, but it's a complete re-write.  No  code
       is copied.
