render text into a bitmap via postscript
[−font fontfile] [−fontsize
resolution] [−stroke strokesize]
takes a single line of text from the command line and
renders it into a PBM image.
The image is
cropped at the top and the right. It is not cropped at the
left or bottom so that the text begins at the same position
relative to the origin. You can use pnmcrop to crop
it all the way.
By default, pbmtextps
uses TimesRoman. You can specify the font to use with the
-font option. This is the name of any valid
postscript font which is installed on your system.
Size of font in points. See the
-resolution option for information on how to
interpret this size.
Default is 24
Resolution in dots per inch of
distance measurements pertaining to generation of the image.
PBM images don’t have any inherent resolution, so a
distance such as "1 inch" doesn’t mean
anything unless you separately specify what resolution
you’re talking about. That’s what this option
the meaning of the font size is determined by this
resolution. If the font size is 24 points and the resolution
is 150 dpi, then the font size is 50 pixels.
Default is 150
Width of line to use for stroke
font. There is no default stroke width because the letters
are solid by default.
