NAME

pbmtolj - convert a portable bitmap into HP LaserJet format

SYNOPSIS

pbmtolj [-resolution N] [-float] [-noreset] [-packbits] [-delta] [-compress] [pbmfile] [-copies N]

DESCRIPTION

Reads a PBM image as input. Produces HP LaserJet data as output.

Note that there is no ljtopbm tool.

OPTIONS

-resolution
Specifies the resolution of the output device, in dpi. Typical values are 75, 100, 150, 300, and 600. The default is 75.
-float
Suppresses positioning information. The default is to write the sequence ESC & l 0 E to the output file.
-noreset
Prevents pbmtolj from writing the reset sequences to the beginning and end of the output file.
-packbits
Enables use of TIFF packbits compression.
-delta
Enables use of delta-between-rows compression.
-compress
Enables use of both TIFF packbits, and delta-between-rows compression.
-copies
Specifies the the number of copies. The default is 1. This option controls the "number of copies" printer control; pbmtolj generates only one copy of the image.

All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.
