ppmtopj(1)			     General Commands Manual			       ppmtopj(1)

NAME
       ppmtopj - convert a portable pixmap to an HP PaintJet file

SYNOPSIS
       ppmtopj	[-gamma  val] [-xpos val] [-ypos val] [-back dark|lite] [-rle] [-center] [-render
       none|snap|bw|dither|diffuse|monodither|monodiffuse|clusterdither|monoclusterdither]  [ppm-
       file]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a  portable pixmap as input and converts it into a format suitable to be printed by
       an HP PaintJet printer.

       For best results, the input file should be in 8-color RGB form; i.e. it should  have  only
       the  8 binary combinations of full-on and full-off primaries.  You could get this by send-
       ing the input file through ppmquant -map with a map file such as:
	   P3
	   8 1
	   255
	   0 0 0      255 0 0	 0 255 0    0 0 255
	   255 255 0  255 0 255  0 255 255  255 255 255
       Or else you could use use ppmdither -red 2 -green 2 -blue 2.

OPTIONS
       -rle	     Run length encode the image.  (This can result in larger images)

       -back	     Enhance the foreground by indicating if the background is light or dark com-
		     pated to the foreground.

       -render alg   Use an internal rendering algorithm (default dither).

       -gamma int    Gamma correct the image using the integet parameter as a gamma (default 0).

       -center	     Center the image to an 8.5 by 11 page

       -xpos pos     Move by pos pixels in the x direction.

       -ypos pos     Move by pos pixels in the y direction.
