Produces various PixMap (PPM) files used for calibrating pnm2ppa.
This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page.


-g, --gamma

produce gamma.ppm (10MB, used in color calibration).

-h, --help

displays this help text.

-o <outfile>

output to file <outfile>, "-o -" means stdout (default)

-p <n>

create test pattern number <n>


pattern 0: align print heads. (default)


pattern 1: test alignment.


pattern 2: clean print head.


pattern 3: center paper.

-s <paper>

default papersize (a4, legal, letter = us (default))


The size of a full-page PixMap is 100MB!!. These PixMaps should be piped directly to pnm2ppa, except in the case of the -g option, where the PixMap should be viewed or printed by other means.
