NAME
       pbmtolj - convert a PBM image to HP LaserJet format

SYNOPSIS
       pbmtolj	[-resolution  N]  [-float]  [-noreset] [-packbits] [-delta] [-compress] [pbmfile]
       [-copies N]

       You can abbreviate any option to its shortest unique prefix.

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pbmtolj reads a PBM image as input and produces HP LaserJet data as output.  You can  send
       this data to a LaserJet or DeskJet printer (at least some of them).

       Each  pixel  in the input PBM image becomes one dot in the printed output.  Therefore, you
       must make sure the width and height of the input are appropriate for the print  resolution
       you  choose  and the print area you want.  E.g. if you print at 300 dpi and want the image
       to print as 8 inches by 10, you must supply a PBM that is 2400 pixels wide by 3000  pixels
       high.   You  can  adjust  the  size  of the input with pamscale, pamstretch, pbmreduce, or
       pamenlarge.

       The input may be a multi-image PBM stream.  Each input image becomes  a	page  of  output.
       But before Netpbm 10.28 (June 2005), images after the first one are ignored.

       Note that there is no ljtopbm tool.

OPTIONS
       -resolution
	      Specifies the resolution of the output device, in dpi.  Another way to look at this
	      is as a declaration of the resolution of the input image	(PBM  images  don't  have
	      inherent	resolution).  Typical values are 75, 100, 150, 300, and 600.  The default
	      is 75.

       -float Suppresses positioning commands.	By default, pbmtolj places the sequence ESC & l 0
	      E in the output, which means to force the top margin to zero.  With -float, pbmtolj
	      omits that command.

       -noreset
	      Prevents pbmtolj from writing the reset sequences to the beginning and end  of  the
	      output file.

       -packbits
	      Enables use of TIFF packbits compression.

       -delta Enables use of delta-between-rows compression.

       -compress
	      Enables use of both TIFF packbits, and delta-between-rows compression.

       -copies
	      Specifies  the  the  number  of copies. The default is 1.  This option controls the
	      'number of copies' printer control; pbmtolj generates only one copy of the image.
