NAME
       pspsvg -	convert	PaintShop Pro(R) gradients (jgd, PspGradient) to the
       SVG format.

SYNOPSIS
       pspsvg [-g geometry] [-h] [-o file] [-p]	[-v] [-V] [file]

DESCRIPTION
       The pspsvg utility converts the gradient	files used by PaintShop	Pro
       (which usually have the extension jgd or	PspGradient) to	the Scalar
       Vector Graphics (SVG) format.

       The program will	read from stdin	if a file is not specified as the
       final argument, and write to stdout if the -o option is not specified.

       The output is formatted for machines to read, rather than humans. A
       post-processor such as tidy(1) could be used in the latter case.

OPTIONS
       --backtrace-file	path
	   Specify a file to which to write a formatted	backtrace. The file
	   will	only be	created	if there is a backtrace	created, typically
	   when	an error occurs.

       --backtrace-format format
	   Specify the format of the backtrace written to the files specified
	   by --backtrace-file,	one of plain, xml or json.

       -g, --geometry widthxheight
	   Specify the size of the SVG preview in pixels.

       -h, --help
	   Brief help.

       -o, --output file
	   Write the output to file, rather than stdout.

       -p, --preview
	   Include a preview in	the SVG	output.	See also the --geometry
	   option.

       -v, --verbose
	   Verbose operation.

       -V, --version
	   Version information.

EXAMPLES
       Create a	machine-readable SVG file:

	   pspsvg -v -o	new.svg	old.jgd

       Create a	human-readable SVG file:

	   pspsvg old.jgd | tidy -xml -indent -o new.svg

NOTES
       The author could	find no	public documentation for the PaintShop Pro
       gradient	file format and	so reverse-engineered it for the first version
       of this program.	An improved analysis of	the format by Olivier
       Berten[1] was used for the present version.

       The PaintShop Pro format	can be read by Photoshop, but Photoshop's
       native (grd) gradient format cannot be read by this program. To convert
       Photoshop gradients, see	the pssvg(1) documentation.

       PaintShop Pro(R)	is a trademark of the Corel Corporation. Adobe
       Photoshop(R) is a trademark of Adobe Systems Inc.
