SYNOPSIS
pbmtextps [-font fontname] [-fontsize fontsize] [-resolution resolu-
tion] [-stroke strokesize] text


DESCRIPTION
This program is part of Netpbm.

pbmtextps takes a single line of text from the command line and ren-
ders it into a PBM image. The image is of a single line of text; new-
line characters in the input have no effect.

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 rela-
tive to the origin. You can use pnmcrop to crop it all the way.

See pbmtext for a more sophisticated generator of text, but using less
common font formats. pbmtext can generate multiple lines of text.

The -plain common option has no effect before Netpbm 10.42 (March
2008). The output is always raw PBM.


OPTIONS
-font By default, pbmtextps uses TimesRoman.



-fontsize



-resolution




-stroke



USAGE
You can generate antialiased text by using a larger resolution than
the default and scaling the image down using pamscale.

See the manual for the similar pbmtext for more advice on usage.


HISTORY
pbmtextps was added to Netpbm in Release 10.0 (June 2002).
