       meta2bmp - convert metafile to Windows Bitmap (BMP) File


       meta2bmp  [ -c | -r ][ -x width ][ -y height ][ -m minrad ][ -o outname
       ] file ..


       Meta2bmp reads each metafile file in sequence  and  converts  it  to  a
       compressed,  color-mapped BMP file.  The result is sent to the standard
       output (which must be redirected) unless the -o option  is  used.   The
       argument to the -o option specifies the base file name, to which a page
       number and ".bmp" is added as a suffix.  Note that this option must  be
       present in order to produce more than a single page of output.

       The default output resolution is 400 by 400, but a different resolution
       can be given with the -x and -y options.

       The -m option can be used to set a minimum value for the line radius in
       pixels.   This  may  be  helpful  for improving the readability of high
       resolution output.  The default value is 0, which allows lines  of  one
       pixel thickness.

       If the option -c is specified, the input files are only conditioned for
       output, ie.  expanded (see pexpand).  This is useful if many copies  of
       the same output is desired.  If the option -r is instead specified, the
       input is assumed already to be conditioned.   If  no  input  files  are
       specified, the standard input is read.


       To  convert  the  plots  examp1.plt  and  examp2.plt to 1024x1024 Targa

         bgraph examp1.plt examp2.plt | meta2bmp -o examp -x 1024 -y 1024
