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[:at:]cs.purdue[:dot:]edu).



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