       ppmtomitsu - convert a portable pixmap to a Mitsubishi S340-10 file

       ppmtomitsu  [-sharpness	val] [-enlarge val] [-media string] [-copy val] [-dpi300] [-tiny]

       Reads a portable pixmap as input and converts it into a format suitable to be printed by a
       Mitsubishi S340-10 printer, or any other Mitsubishi color sublimation printer.

       The  Mitsubishi	S340-10  Color	Sublimation  printer supports 24bit color.  Images of the
       available sizes take so long to transfer that there is a fast method, employing a lookupt-
       able,  that  ppmtomitsu	will use if there is a maximum of 256 colors in the pixmap.  ppm-
       tomitsu will try to position your image to the center of the paper, and will  rotate  your
       image  for  you	if  xsize  is  larger than ysize.  If your image is larger than the media
       allows, ppmtomitsu will quit with an error message. (We decided that the  media	were  too
       expensive  to have careless users produce misprints.)  Once data transmission has started,
       the job can't be stopped in a sane way without resetting the printer.  The printer  under-
       stands  putting together images in the printers memory; ppmtomitsu doesn't utilize this as
       pnmcat etc provide the same functionality and let you view the result on-screen, too.  The
       S340-10	is  the lowest common denominator printer; for higher resolution printers there's
       the dpi300 option. The other printers also support higher values for  enlarge  eg,  but	I
       don't think that's essential enough to warrant a change in the program.

       -sharpness 1-4
	       'sharpness' designation. Default is to use the current sharpness.

       -enlarge 1-3
	      Enlarge by a factor; Default is 1 (no enlarge)

       -media A, A4, AS, A4S
	      Designate  the  media  you're  using. Default is 1184 x 1350, which will fit on any
	      media. A is 1216 x 1350, A4 is 1184 x 1452, AS is 1216 x 1650 and  A4S  is  1184	x
	      1754.  A	warning: If you specify a different media than the printer currently has,
	      the printer will wait until you put in the correct media or switch it off.

       -copy 1-9
	      The number of copies to produce. Default is 1.

	      Double the number of allowed pixels for a S3600-30 Printer in S340-10 compatibility
	      mode. (The S3600-30 has 300 dpi).

       -tiny  Memory-safing,  but  always  slow.  The  printer	will get the data line-by-line in
	      24bit. It's probably a good idea to use this if your machine starts  paging  a  lot
	      without this option.

       We didn't find any - yet. (Besides, they're called features anyway :-) If you should  find
       one, my email-adress is below.
