       djvups - Convert DjVu documents to PostScript.


       djvups  [options] [djvufile] [outputfile]


       This  program  decodes  DjVu  file djvufile, and generates a PostScript
       file named outputfile.  The DjVu data is read from the  standard  input
       when argument djvufile is not specified or when it is equal to a single
       dash.  Similarly, the output data is written  to  the  standard  output
       when argument outputfile is not specified or equal to a single dash.

       PostScript  printers  have  various  capabilities.  Investigate options
       -level and -gray for obtaining the best results.


       -help  Prints the list of recognized options.

              Displays a progress bar.

              Specify the document pages to be converted.  The page specifica-
              tion  pagespec contains one or more comma-separated page ranges.
              A page range is either a page number, or two page numbers  sepa-
              rated by a dash.  Specification 1-10, for instance, prints pages
              1 to 10.  Specification 1,3,99999-4 prints pages 1 and  3,  fol-
              lowed by all the document pages in reverse order up to page 4.

              Produce a PostScript file.  This is the default.

              Produce  an  Encapsulated  PostScript  file.  Encapsulated Post-
              Script files are suitable for embedding images into other  docu-
              ments.   Encapsulated  PostScript file can only contain a single
              page. Setting this option overrides the options -copies, -orien-
              tation, -zoom, -cropmarks, and -booklet.

              Specify the number of copies to print.

              Specify  whether  pages  should  be printed using the auto, por-
              trait, or landscape orientation.

              Specify how pages should be decoded.  The default  mode,  color,
              renders  all  the layers of the DjVu documents.  Mode black only
              renders the foreground layer mask.  This mode does not work with
              DjVuPhoto  images  because  these files have no foreground layer
              mask.  Modes foreground and background  only  render  the  fore-
              ground layer or the background layer of a DjVuDocument image.

              Specify  a zoom factor zoomspec.  The default zoom factor, auto,
              scales the image to fit the page.  Argument zoomspec also can be
              a  number  in range 25 to 2400 representing a magnification per-
              centage relative to the original size of the document.

              Specifying yes causes the generation of a thin gray border  rep-
              resenting  the boundaries of the document pages.  The default is

              Specifying yes causes the generation of  crop  marks  indicating
              where pages should be cut.  The default is no.

              Select  the  language  level  of the generated PostScript.  lan-
              guagelevel.  Valid language levels are 1, 2,  and  3.   Level  3
              produces  the  most  compact and fast printing PostScript files.
              Some of these files  however  require  a  very  modern  printer.
              Level  2  is  the default value.  The generated PostScript files
              are almost as compact and work with all  but  the  oldest  Post-
              Script printers.  Level 1 can be used as a last resort option.

              The  default  value,  yes,  generates  a  color PostScript file.
              Specifying value no converts  the  image  to  gray  scale.   The
              resulting  PostScript file is smaller and marginally more porta-

       -gray  This option is equivalent to option -color=no  and  is  provided
              for convenience.

              The default value, yes, generates a PostScript file using device
              independent colors in compliance with  the  sRGB  specification.
              Modern  printers  then produce colors that match the original as
              well as possible.  Specifying value no  generates  a  PostScript
              file  using  device  dependent colors.  This is sometimes useful
              with older printers.  You can then use option -gamma to tune the
              output colors.

              Specify a gamma correction factor for the device dependent Post-
              Script colors.  Argument gammaspec must be in range 0.3 to  5.0.
              Gamma correction normally pertains to cathodic screens only.  It
              gets meaningful for printers because  several  models  interpret
              device dependent RGB colors by emulating the color response of a
              cathodic tube.

              Turns the booklet printing mode on.  The booklet mode prints two
              pages  on  each  side  in a way suitable for making a booklet by
              folding the sheets. Option opt can take values no for  disabling
              the booklet mode, yes for enabling the recto/verso booklet mode,
              and recto or verso to print only one side of each sheet.

              Specifies the maximal number of pages  per  booklet.   A  single
              printout  might  then  be composed of several booklets. Argument
              max is rounded up to the next multiple of 4.  Specifying 0  sets
              no  maximal  number  of pages and ensures that the printout will
              produce a single booklet.  This is the default.

              Specifies a positive or negative offset applied  to the verso of
              each sheet.  Argument align is expressed in points (one point is
              1/72th of an inch, or 0.352 millimeter) This is useful with cer-
              tain  printers  to ensure that both recto and verso are properly
              aligned.  The default value is of course 0.

              Specifies the extra margin left  between both pages on a  single
              sheet.  The base value base is expressed in points (one point is
              1/72th of an inch, or 0.352 millimeter). This margin  is  incre-
              mented  for  each  outer sheet by value incr expressed in milli-
              points. The default value is 18+200.
