PlotConv

PlotConv combines graphics file viewing, format conversion and printing into a single tool.

Various Winteracter-compatible graphics file formats are supported, including BMP, PCX, PNG, JPEG, ICO, CUR, CGM, HP-GL, HP-GL/2 and (under Windows) WMF/EMF metafiles. PNG and ICO support allows for 8-bit transparency ("alpha channel").

Images can be viewed in an actual size window or in a preview field. Multi-page images are supported and may be stepped through.

Various conversion options are included, depending on the input file type. Target output formats include all of the supported input formats plus EPS, SVG and DXF.

Multi-image files are supported in CGM, HP-GL and HP-GL/2 formats. Individual images can be viewed in multi-image files or all of the images can be merged into a composite.

Graphics files can be printed via Print Manager (Windows) or to HP PCL and Epson printers (X Windows). Printing in PostScript, HP-GL/2 and HP-GL formats is also supported on all platforms. When printing multi-image files, the whole file, the current image or an image range can be selected.

As an added bonus, PlotConv can be redistributed with Winteracter based applications.
