PIX-PS(1)			    BRL-CAD			     PIX-PS(1)

NAME
       pix-ps -	convert	a color	pix file to PostScript

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

DESCRIPTION
       pix-ps will take	a color	pix(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 (on by default) will center it on	a 8.5 x	11 inch	page;
       otherwise, the -l option	uses the lower left corner. 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
       pix-ps -c image.pix > image.ps

       Produces	a 6.75 inch PostScript file from a 512x512 input image and
       centers it on an	8.5 x 11 inch page.

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

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

       pix-ps -L -c -S 5.2 < image.pix > image.ps

       Makes a PostScript file of the (assumed 512x512)	image, with the	output
       image 5.2 inches	square,	in landscape mode, centered on an 8.5 x	11
       inch page.
