Linux / Unix Command: pbmtoepsi
Command Library


pbmtoepsi - convert a portable bitmap into an encapsulated PostScript style preview bitmap  


pbmtoepsi [-bbonly] [pbmfile]  


Reads a portable bitmap as input. Produce 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. Note that there is no epsitopbm tool - this transformation is one way.

This utility is a part of the pstoepsi tool by Doug Crabill (dgc@cs.purdue.edu).  


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


pbm(5), pnmtops(1), pstopnm(1), psidtopgm(1), pbmtolps(1), ps(1)  

Important: Use the man command (% man) to see how a command is used on your particular computer.
