BW-PS(1)			    BRL-CAD			      BW-PS(1)

NAME
       bw-ps - convert a black and white bw file to PostScript

SYNOPSIS
       bw-ps [-e] [-c] [-L] [-s	input_squaresize] [-w input_width]
	     [-n input_height] [-S inches_square] [-W inches_width]
	     [-N inches_height]	[infile.bw] > outfile.ps

DESCRIPTION
       bw-ps will take a black and white bw(5) format file of given dimensions
       and produce a Postscript	file on	the standard output. The -w and	-n
       flags specify the input file width and number of	scan lines in pixels.
       They can	both be	set to the same	value via -s.  If no input size	is
       given, defaults of 512 are assumed.

       By default the output PostScript	image size is 6.75 inches. The -c
       option will center it on	a 8.5 x	11 inch	page. If a different output
       size is desired,	-S -W and -N can be used to set	the size in inches
       analogous to the	input parameters. Finally, -L selects landscape	mode,
       i.e. rotates the	output image by	ninety degrees.

       Encapsulated PostScript files can be generated via -e.

EXAMPLES
       bw-ps -c	image.bw > image.ps

       Produces	a 6.75 inch PostScript file from an 512	x 512 input image and
       centers it on an	8.5 x 11 inch page.

       bw-ps -e	-w 1024	-n 768 image.bw	> image.ps

       Takes the file image.bw which has the dimensions	of 1024	pixels wide by
       768 pixels high,	and produces an	Encapsulated Postscript	version	of it.

       bw-ps -L	-c -S 5.2 < image.bw > image.px

       Makes a PostScript file of the (assumed 512 square) image, with the
       output image 5.2	inches square, in landscape mode, centered on an 8.5 x
       11 inch page.
