Examples

Create a black and white HIPERC stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r600x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2hiperc -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p0 >testpage.zm

Create a color HIPERC stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g5100x6600 -r600x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk  
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2hiperc -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p0 >testpage.zc
