PCXSCALE



(02-24-1992 7:00am PCXSCALE.EXE)
Usage: InFile OutFile XPixels [YPixels] [XDPI] [YDPI]

Scales PCX files (shrinks or grows).
Parameter 1 is the input file
(assumed to be a valid PCX file, extension defaults to .PCX)
Parameter 2 is the output file
(extension defaults to .PCX)
Parameter 3 is the X axis (horizontal) pixel count for the output
Parameter 4 is the Y axis (vertical) pixel count for the output
Parameter 5 is the X axis pixel count for the output device (default=300)
Parameter 6 is the Y axis pixel count for the output device (default=300)

If XScale is given without YScale, YScale is calculated in proportion to XScale.
YScale may be given without XScale by entering _ for XScale, in which case
XScale is calcuated in proportion to YScale.

Scale may be expressed as:
- Absolute output size in pixels or inches,
- Output size relative to the input size as a factor or a percentage.
- DPI of originally intended output device
- Symbol of originally intended output device
Use a trailing % sign for percentages, a trailing " sign for inches,
a whole number for absolute pixels, or a number with a decimal point
for a factor. Trailing DPI for specifying original output resolution.
Examples: (where input file is X=1000 pixels by Y=1000 pixels)
XScaleValue YScaleValue
----------- -----------
1000 1200 Output is 1000x1200 pixels, stretched vertically
25% 25% Output is 25% of original size: 250x250 pixels
1-1/4" 1-1/4" Output is 1-1/4"x1-1/4"
2" 2" Output is 2"x2"
2.0 2.0 Output is 2 times input size: 2000x2000 pixels
300DPI Output is scaled to printer to produce same size
output on target printer as it would if printed
full size on a 300 dpi printer (ex: laser printer).
HP Same as entering 300DPI
240DPI 216DPI Output is scaled to printer to produce same size
output on target printer as it would if printed
full size on a 240x216 dpi printer (ex: FX printer).
FX Same as entering 240DPI 216DPI
