img2eps, a raster image to EPSF converter.
img2eps packages raster images into EPS (Encapsulated PostScript)
files, using whatever PostScript features are advantageous. If
possible, the compressed image data is copied directly to the EPS
Supported image file formats are GIF, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, TIFF, and XPM.
For generic installation instructions, see file INSTALL; for documentation read the man page; for internal documentation see the documents in the doc subdirectory.
If you make a binary distribution, please include a pointer to the distribution site: http://nih.at/img2eps
Mail suggestions and bug reports to email@example.com.
img2eps does not require the following packages, but certain
features will be omitted if they are missing:
For image format support: libpng, jpeg, jasper, tiff, and either giflib or libungif.
For compression support: zlib (FlateEncode), jpeg (DCTEncode).
For EXIF support (to auto-rotate jpeg images): libexif.
img2eps's configure script searches for these libraries with
pkg-config (if the library supports it) and in the directories the
compiler searches. If you have them installed elsewhere, pass
LDFLAGS to configure to make the compiler find them. For
example, if you have the libraries installed in
following should work:
CPFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include' LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib' ./configure
If your runtime linker needs to be told to search extra directories
img2eps will link in that case, but complain about missing
libraries when run), either of the following
LDFLAGS settings should
LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib -R/usr/local/lib' LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib -Wl,-R/usr/local/lib'
(The first works on Solaris, the second on NetBSD.)
