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.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
