documentation of -width and -height in pnmtops man page is wrong
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:12:03 EST
The documentation of the -width -and -height options in the pnmtops man page in
the netpbm-progs package claims, "The page size has no effect, however, when you
specify the -imagewidth, -imageheight, or -equalpixels options." I've
determined empirically that this simply isn't true. If I give pnmtops a 600dpi
PBM which is 8" by 13" and specify "-dpi 600 -equalpixels -noturn -rle", it cuts
the bitmap off at 11" in height. If, however, I run the same command with
"-height 14", it prints the whole thing (I'm using legal paper, obviously). The
program's behavior is probably correct; it's just that the man page needs to be
OK, fixed manpage.
Will be in netpbm-10.19-3 and later.
Read ya, Phil
