NAME

       aspic - a line-art processor

SYNOPSIS


       aspic [<options>] [<source file> [<destination file>]]

DESCRIPTION


       Aspic  is  a program that processes a textual description of a line art
       graphic, and converts it into a form that is suitable for inclusion  in
       another document. The default output format is Encapsulated PostScript,
       but there is also support for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), and there
       is   legacy   support   for  the  SGCAL  text  processor.  For  a  full
       specification, see the reference manual. This man page contains only  a
       description of the command line interface.

       If  no source or destination file names are given, Aspic reads from the
       standard input and writes to  the  standard  output.  Alternatively,  a
       single  hyphen  character  may  be given as a file name to indicate the
       standard input or output streams. Error messages  are  written  to  the
       standard error stream.

OPTIONS


       -help     Give some help information and exit.

       -nv       Disable  the  use  of  Aspic  variables  (dollar is no longer
                 special).

       -ps       Output is encapsulated PostScript. This is the default.

       -svg      Output is Scalar Vector Graphics (SVG), an XML application.

       -sgcal    Output is input for the SGCAL text formatter  (not  generally
                 released).

       -tr       Translate  certain  characters  (e.g.  grave  accent  becomes
                 opening quote).

       -v        Verify the Aspic version number, and exit.
