Giftops converts a GIF image file to a PostScript program.
Giftops uses the standard output path, so you may direct output to
printer or file( via command line redirection).


usage: giftops [-els] [-c{copies}] [-w{width}] [-h{height}] [file]
Where e = generate output as EPSF (Encapsulated PostScript File),
suitable for use with applications that support EPSF.
l = Landscape: rotates image 90 degrees on page.
s = Alternate halftone: specifies halftone parameters for placement
of "spots" - 90 degrees and 60 spots/inch. Called "screen" in the
source code, Because it creates a screen effect on the
printed image?
c = Number of copies for the printer to generate.
w = Width in inches on printed page.
h = Height in inches on printed page.
file = Filename.ext of GIF image file.

Examples:
giftops neptune.gif >prn
Outputs image to printer using default width and height(7.5" X 9.0")

giftops -l -w6.0 -h4.8 neptune.gif >prn
Outputs image to printer in landscape format 6.0" X 4.8"


Note: The "screen" mode paramters (90 degrees at 60 spots/inch) can be changed
to whatever you want. A good range of values to play with are 35 - 45
degrees and 50 - 150 spots/inch.
