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.
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.
Print num copies of each page. By default only one
copy is printed.
-f Flip the sense of the bits in files before printing
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.
Print num logical pages on each piece of paper, where
num can be any positive integer. By default num is set
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.
Print files in either portrait or landscape mode. Only
the first character of mode is significant. The
default mode is portrait.
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
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.
