pict2pdf [-fv] [-r angle] [-s scale] [-h height] [-w
width] [-b borderwidth] file1 [file2]
pict2pdf converts files in Apple's PICT format to Adobe's
PDF format. The conversion retains any vector information
in the PICT image. The new PDF file will be created in
the same directory as the PICT file but with the extension
.pdf. The extension will be appended to the PICT file
name if the PICT file does not end with .pict (or .PICT),
otherwise the .pict extension will be replaced.
will draw a bounding rectangle in the pdf image
with a thickness equal to borderwidth pixels.
-f force an existing PDF files to be overwritten
sets the height of the pdf image to height pixels
(1/72 inch). If -w height is not used, then the
entire image is uniformly scaled to reach height.
If -w width is specified, then this parameter only
affects vertical scaling.
the PICT image will be rotated counter-clockwise
by angle degrees before conversion to the PDF
magnify the PICT image by a scale factor. If
scale is 0.5 then the PDF image will one-half the
size of the original PICT image.
-v print version info
sets the width of the pdf image to width pixels
(1/72 inch). If -h height is not used, then the
entire image is uniformly scaled to reach width.
If -h height is specified, then this parameter
only affects horizontal scaling.
will produce sample.pdf in the same directory. If
sample.pdf already exists then the program exits
No support for stdin/stdout.
