NAME
       pbmtoepsi - convert a PBM image to an encapsulated PostScript style preview bitmap


SYNOPSIS
       pbmtoepsi [-dpi=N[xN]] [-bbonly] [pbmfile]

       All  options  can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.  You may use two hyphens instead of one.  You
       may separate an option name and its value with white space instead of an equals sign.


DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       Reads a PBM image as input.  Produces an encapsulated Postscript style bitmap as output.  The output is  not  a
       stand  alone  postscript file, it is only a preview bitmap, which can be included in an encapsulated PostScript
       file.

       pbmtoepsi assumes the PBM input describes a whole output page, with one pixel on the page corresponding to  one
       PBM  pixel.  It detects white borders in the image and generates Postscript output that contains a Bounding Box
       statement to describe the location of the principal image (the image excluding the white borders) on  the  page
       and thus does not include the borders in the raster part of the Postscript output.

       There is no epsitopbm tool - this transformation is one way.


OPTIONS
       -dpi=N[xN]

              This option specifies the resolution in dots per inch of the
                   ultimate output device.  You must specify this because the
                   Bounding Box statement defines the bounding box in absolute
                   distances, not in pixels.  pbmtoepsi assumes in
                   calculating the bounding box that each PBM pixel will become one
                   dot on the output device, and applies your dpi
                   specification to calculate the size and location on the page of
                   the bounding box.

              If you specify NxN, the first number is the
                   horizontal resolution and the second number is the vertical
                   resolution.  If you specify just a single number N, that is the
                   resolution in both directions.

              The default is 72 dots per inch in both directions.

              This option was new In Netpbm 10.3 (June 2002).  Before that,
                   pbmtoepsi always assumed 72 dots per inch in both directions.


       -bbonly
              Only create a boundary box, don't fill it with the image.
