I am pretty sure GIMP (GUI) can do the job. Athough I'm not very experienced on GIMP, I have been using Adobe PhotoShop for sometimes. They are quite similar. But GIMP is a heavy tool to do this simple job.
I'm not knowledgeable on command line of GIMP.
Now after saving the sample script (A simple example) listed on
Try the tool called enscript . It can convert text files to ps or jpg type. It did convert a doc file for me but the output was garbage. Maybe that could be fixed by saving the doc file as text first.
Also, the command is not what you may expect as the output file is typed before the input file name.
enscript -p test.jpg test.txt
enscript -p test.ps test.txt
My target is to breakthrough languages/fonts barrier assisting the recipiants of email to read its attachments which are edited in Chinese/Japanese.
There are still some funny folks on this globe, knowing nothing to install fonts. They are still running M$Win/ME/98, knowing nothing about "update". They only know browsing Internet, sending emails, text editing, etc. They rely on other people to fix the PC for them to use. They even don't know how to get Acrobat Reader from Internet, free of Charge. If you send them emails with attachments other than .jpg/.png format they don't know how to open/read the same. If the attachments being on .htm/.html format and they don't have the same fonts installed they can't read the attachments. They totally rely on the senders assisting them to read the attachments. For such a reason and in my consideration, the simplest way is to send them pictures in .jpg/.png format.
That's definitely new turf for me so I can only guess.
This is from: man enscript
Pretty-print source code by creating a special input filter with the states pro-
gram. Optional argument lang specifies the language to highlight, as a default
states makes an educated guess.
A description of supported highlighting languages and file formats can be
printed with command:
The highlighting rules are defined in the Ď/usr/share/enscript/enscript.stí file
which can be edited to create highlighting definitions for new languages.
Note! You canít use your own input filters with this option.
Just wanted to chime in here. I am in the process of trying to do the same thing (.txt -> .jpg) for upload onto my PSP. I have a bunch of ebooks, and the allure of that large screen is too much to resist.
As such, convert has been working very very well for me. I still have a few questions about specifying output size, etc., but the files are quite usable and clear. Might wanna explore that a little more...
