bbox - prints out the bounding box of a rawppm or rawpbm image
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
bbox [ -l] [ -r] [ -h] [ -V] [ \fIrawpbmfile\fB]
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
bbox reads a rawppm or rawpbm file and prints out the bounding box of the image (as postscript comment and in postscript points, i.e. 1/72dpi) as well as the high resolution bounding box. Input is read from standard input if no filename is specified. Example output:
bbox has only very limited memory requirements as it reads the input line by line and thus needs to store only one picture line in memory.
