I notice the intermittent cries for improved print quality, and the pointing of fingers at cutswath.c. I have the skills to work on this, and some desire to do so. I'm not that up to speed on the innter workings of pnm2ppa though, so, in the intersets of saving time, and getting me started asap, is there anyone who could fill me in on what needs to be done?
sorry I havent looked here for a long time.
The best thing to do would be to seperate the pnm and ppa parts of
pnm2ppa and instead use gimp-print
to generate the
image, and write a backend to send it as
ppa instructions to the printer.
A simpler improvement to pnm2ppa would be
to improve the details of cutswath.c.
I dont have time or motivation to do this
but if you wanted to work on this I could
provide some advice. (I didnt write
pnm2ppa, but hacked at the almost-working version to make it work properly. I have some understanding
of parts of it but not all!)
if you are still interested.
