sam2p – Convert bitmap formats to compact PS/PDF
Sam2p is a UNIX command line utility written in ANSI C++ that
converts many raster (bitmap) image formats into Adobe PostScript
or PDF files and several other formats. The images are not
vectorized. sam2p gives full control to the user to specify
standards-compliance, compression, and bit depths. In some cases
sam2p can compress an image 100 times smaller than the PostScript
output of many other common image converters. Sam2p provides ZIP,
RLE and LZW (de)compression filters even on output destined for
PostScript Level 1 devices.
The author provides a script bundle, a2ping, that uses sam2p as part of a generic format conversion mechanism.
