       pbm2ppa	-  convert  portable bitmap (PBM) to HP's Printing Performance Architecture (PPA)
       file format

       pbm2ppa [options] [ <infile] > [ <outfile]> ] ]

       Reads portable bitmap (PBM) format as input.  Outputs a stream suitable for processing  by
       Hewlett-Packard's range of Printing Performance Architecture (PPA) printers.  pnm2ppa sup-
       ports the HP 710c, 712c, 720c, 722c, 820c, and 1000c series printers.

       (Portable bitmap (PBM) format output can be produced  from  PostScript(tm)  input  by  the
       GhostScript driver "pbmraw".)

       infile Input  file  infile  is either a path to a file or device, or '-' to indicate stdin
	      (defaults to stdin)

	      Output file outfile is either a path to a file or device, or '-' to indicate stdout
	      (defaults to stdout)

       -b bottommargin
	      Sets  the  bottom  margin  bottommargin  in  units of 1/600 inches (e.g.,  -b 150 =

       -d     Displays the current configuration

       -f configfile
	      Overrides reading the configuration from	/etc/pnm2ppa.conf,  and  uses  configfile

       -h     Displays program usage

       -l leftmargin
	      Sets the left margin leftmargin in units of 1/600 inches (e.g., -l 150 = 0.25")

       -r rightmargin
	      Sets the right margin rightmargin in units of 1/600 inches (e.g., -r 150 = 0.25")

       -s papersize
	      Sets  the  paper	size. Possible values for papersize are a4 (A4), letter or us (US
	      Letter, 8.5"x11"), and legal (US Legal, 8.5"x14").  The default is US Letter.

       -t topmargin
	      Sets the top margin topmargin in units of 1/600 inches (ie -t 150 = 0.25")

       -v printertype
	      Selects the printer model.  Possible values of printertype are: 710, 712, 720, 722,
	      820 and 1000.  The default is the HP DeskJet 7X0 Series (710, 712, 720, 722).

       -x xoffset
	      Sets the x-offset xoffset from the left of the page. Units are 1/600 inches

       -y yoffset
	      Sets the y-offset yoffset from the top of the page. Units are 1/600 inches

       The  configuration file is read in first. Command line arguments then modify the resulting

       The -x and -y options accumulate. The -v option resets all definitions back to an  inbuilt
       default	for  that  printer and should be used before subsequent -b -l -r, -t,  -x, and -y

       This program was written by Tim Norman. It originally supported black and white output  on
       the  820 series. This program is almost obsolete; its successor pnm2ppa will support color

       This is a stable driver, but does not support color printing.
