postdmd - PostScript translator for DMD bitmap files


     postdmd [-b num] [-c num] [-f] [-m num]  [-n num]  [-o list]
     [-p mode] [-x num] [-y num] [file...]



     postdmd translates DMD bitmap files, as produced  by  dmdps,
     or  files  written  in the Ninth Edition bitfile(9.5) format
     into PostScript and writes the results on the standard  out-
     put.  If no files are specified, or if - is one of the input
     files, the standard input is read.


     -b num
           Pack the bitmap in the output file using num byte pat-
           terns. A value of  0 turns off all packing of the out-
           put file. By default, num is  6.

     -c num
           Print num copies of each page.  By  default  only  one
           copy is printed.

     -f    Flip the sense of the bits in  files  before  printing
           the bitmaps.

     -m num
           Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are
           scaled uniformly about the origin, which by default is
           located at the center of each page. The  default  mag-
           nification is  1.0.

     -n num
           Print num logical pages on each piece of paper,  where
           num can be any positive integer. By default num is set
           to  1.

     -o list
           Print pages whose numbers  are  given  in  the  comma-
           separated list. The list contains single numbers N and
           ranges N1 - N2. A missing N1 means the lowest numbered
           page,  a  missing N2 means the highest. The page range
           is an expression of logical pages rather than physical
           sheets  of paper. For example, if you are printing two
           logical pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of
           4,  then  two  sheets of paper would print, containing
           four page layouts. If you specified a  page  range  of
           3-4,  when  requesting  two  logical pages to a sheet;
           then only page 3 and page 4 layouts would  print,  and
           they would appear on one physical sheet of paper.

     -p mode
           Print files in either portrait or landscape mode. Only
           the  first  character  of  mode  is  significant.  The
           default mode is portrait.

     -x num
           Translate the origin num inches along the  positive  x
           axis.  The  default  coordinate  system has the origin
           fixed at the center of the page, with  positive  x  to
           the  right  and  positive  y up the page. Positive num
           moves everything  right.  The  default  offset  is   0

     -y num
           Translate the origin num inches along the  positive  y
           axis.  Positive  num moves everything up the page. The
           default offset is  0.

     Only one bitmap is printed on each logical page, and each of
     the  input  files  must  contain complete descriptions of at
     least one bitmap. Decreasing the pattern size using  the  -b
     option  may help throughput on printers with fast processors
     (such as PS-810s), while increasing the  pattern  size  will
     often be the right move on older models (such as PS-800s).


     The following exit values are returned:

     0     Successful completion.

           An error occurred.
