       gif2ps - GIF-to-PostScript conversion.


       gif2ps  [-q]  [-x]  [-y]  [-s  sx  sy] [-p px py] [-i] [-n copies] [-h]

       If no gif-file is given, Gif2PS will try to read a GIF file from stdin.




               quiet  mode.   Defaults  off on MSDOS, on under UNIX.  Controls
              printout of running scan lines.  Use -q- to invert.

               Force image to be horizontal (‘landscape  mode’).   By  default
              image  will  be  positioned so it will be the biggest.  If -x is
              given image will be scaled to be biggest possible  horizontally.

               Force vertical (‘portrait mode’); analogous to -x.

       [-s sx sy]

               Force  image  size  to  be sx by sy inches.  If image will exit
              page dimensions, it will scream and die.   Page  dimensions  are
              8.5  by  11.0  inches  but  only  7.5  by  9.0 are assumed to be

       [-p pc py]

               Force image lower left corner to be as px py.   If  this  would
              overrun the page’s dimensions, it will scream and die.

               Image  will  be  inverted  (Black  ->  White  and  vice versa).
              Mapping from colors is done by 0.3 * RED  0.59 * GREEN   0.11  *
              BLUE and sometimes inverting the image will look better.

       [-n copies]

               Number of copies to print.  1 by default.

               Print one line of command help, similar to Usage above.
