BBOX(1)								       BBOX(1)

NAME
       bbox - prints out the bounding box of a rawppm or rawpbm	image

SYNOPSIS
       bbox [ -l ] [ -r	] [ -h ] [ -V ]	[ rawpbmfile ]

DESCRIPTION
       bbox  reads  a rawppm or	rawpbm file and	prints out the bounding	box of
       the image  (as  postscript  comment  and	 in  postscript	 points,  i.e.
       1/72dpi)	 as  well  as  the high	resolution bounding box. Input is read
       from standard input if no filename is specified.	 Example output:

	      %%BoundingBox: 12	253 829	837
	      %%HiResBoundingBox: 12.500000 253.000000 828.500000 837.00000

       bbox has	only very limited memory requirements as it  reads  the	 input
       line by line and	thus needs to store only one picture line in memory.

OPTIONS
       -h | --help
	      Show summary of options.

       -V     Show version of program.

       -r     resolution of picture in dpi

       -l     loose bounding box (integer bounding box is expanded by 1	point,
	      hires bounding box is expanded by	0.5 points)

AUTHOR
       bbox was	written	by Roland Bless.

   ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
       Special thanks goes to Michael Sharpe from UCSD who suggested a lot  of
       improvements for	bbox to	become more precise and	robust,	especially for
       small drawings.

       An earlier version of this manual page was originally written by	Rafael
       Laboissiere  <rafael@debian.org>	 for  the  Debian  system.  Thank  you

BUGS
       Though the code is quite	small and the  probability  for	 bugs  is  now
       small, there may	be some	left somewhere between the lines.  In case you
       find one, please	send a short description with bbox version  number  to
