     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.

     -b num   Pack the bitmap in the output file using  num  byte
              patterns.  A  value  of  0 turns off all packing of
              the output file. By default, num is  6.

     -c num   Print num copies of each page. By default only  one
              copy is printed.

     -f       Flip the sense of the bits in files before printing
              the bitmaps.

     -m num   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 magnification is  1.0.

     -n num   Print num logical pages on  each  piece  of  paper,
              where  num  can be any positive integer. By default
              num is set to  1.

     -o list  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.

     -p mode  Print files in either portrait or  landscape  mode.
              Only  the  first  character of mode is significant.
              The default mode is portrait.

     -x num   Translate the origin num inches along the  positive
              x  axis. The default coordinate system has the ori-
              gin 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 inches.

     -y num   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.

     non-zero        An error occurred.
