BBOX(1)                             PS2EPS                             BBOX(1)

       bbox - prints out the bounding box of a rawppm or rawpbm image

       bbox [-l] [-r] [-h] [-V] [rawpbmfile]

       bbox reads a rawppm or rawpbm file and prints out the bounding box of
       the image (as postscript comment and in postscript points, i.e.
       1/72dpi) as well as the high resolution bounding box. Input is read
       from standard input if no filename is specified. Example output:

                  %%BoundingBox: 12 253 829 837
                  %%HiResBoundingBox: 12.500000 253.000000 828.500000 837.00000

       bbox has only very limited memory requirements as it reads the input
       line by line and thus needs to store only one picture line in memory.

       bbox was written by Roland Bless.

       Special thanks goes to Michael Sharpe from UCSD who suggested a lot of
       improvements for bbox to become more precise and robust, especially for
       small drawings.

       Though the code is quite small and the probability for bugs is now
       small, there may be some left somewhere between the lines. In case you
       find one, please send a short description with bbox version number to
       <> (please allow some time to reply).
