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.
