       g3tolj - converts a Group 3 fax file into a printable HP-PCL file


       g3tolj      [-kludge]     [-reversebits]     [-scale N]     [-aspect N]
       [-resolution 75|100|150|300]     [-compress 0|1|2]      [-pagelength N]
       [-duplength N] [g3file]


       Reads  a  Group 3 fax file (raw or digifax) as input. If no filename is
       given, stdin is used.  Produces a printable HP-PCL file as output.


              Tells g3tolj to skip the first lines for synchronisation.

              Tells g3tolj to interpret bits least-significant first,  instead
              of  the  default  most-significant  first.   Apparently some fax
              modems do it one way and others do it the other way.  If you get
              a whole bunch of "invalid code" messages, try using this flag.

       -scale N
              Scale the output to match the printer resolution and paper size,
              the default of 1.40 will do in most cases.

       -aspect N
              Scale the output to match the printer resolution and paper size,
              the  default  of 1.0 will do for high resolution faxes, 2.0 will
              do for low resolution faxes.

       -resolution 75|100|150|300
              Selects print resolution. The default is 300.

       -compress 0|1|2
              Selects compression method for the print output. 0 = none,  1  =
              rll, 2 = tiff.  The default is 0.

       -pagelength N
              Defines  the  pagelength  in inches, the default is 10.95. After
              this length a pagebreak is generated and the last  part  of  the
              previous page is duplicated on the next page

       -duplength N
              Defines  the  length  in  inches that will be duplicated after a
              pagebreak, The default is 0.7.


       The standard for Group 3 fax is defined in CCITT Recommendation T.4.
