NAME
       rletops - Convert RLE images to PostScript

SYNOPSIS
       rletops	[  -C  ]  [  -a	aspect ] [ -c center ] [ -h height ] [ -o out-
       file.ps ] [ -s ]	[ infile ]

DESCRIPTION
       Rletops converts	RLE(5) images into PostScript.	 The  conversion  uses
       the  PostScript image operator, instructing the device to reproduce the
       image to	the best of its	abilities.  If infile isn't specified, the RLE
       image  is  read from stdin.  The	PostScript output is dumped to stdout,
       or to outfile.ps, if specified.

OPTIONS
       -a aspect
	      Specify aspect ratio of image.  Default is 1.0 (note  PostScript
	      uses square pixels).

       -C     Causes  a	 color PostScript image	to be generated.  This creates
	      larger files and uses the	PostScript colorimage operator,	 which
	      is not recognized	by all devices.	 The default is	monochrome.

       -c center
	      Centers  the  images  about  a point center inches from the left
	      edge of the page (or left	margin if -s is	 specified).   Default
	      is 4.25 inches.

       -h height
	      Specifies	 the  height (in inches) the image is to appear	on the
	      page.  The default is three inches.  The width of	the  image  is
	      calculated from the image	height,	aspect ratio, and pixel	dimen-
	      sions.

       -s     Specifies	image is to be generated in "Scribe Mode."  The	 image
	      is  generated without a PostScript showpage operator at the end,
	      and the default image center is changed to 3.25 inches from  the
	      margin  (which  usually  is  1 inch).  This is to	generate Post-
	      Script files that	can be included	in Scribe documents  with  the
	      @Picture	command.   Images  may also be included	in LaTex docu-
	      ments with local conventions like	the  \special{psfile=image.ps}
	      command.

NOTES
       On  devices  like  the Apple LaserWriter, rletops generates large Post-
       Script files that take a	non-trivial amount of  time  to	 download  and
       print.	A 512x512 image	takes about ten	minutes.  For including	images
       in documents at the default sizes, 256x256 is usually sufficient	 reso-
       lution.

SEE ALSO
       avg4(1),	urt(1),	RLE(5).

       Portions	are based on a program by Marc Majka.

BUGS
       Due to a	mis-understanding with the PostScript interpreter, rletops al-
       ways rounds the image size up to	an even	number of scanlines.
