mercuryresearch's Journal: scan2pdf script

Journal by mercuryresearch

So, I had a query regarding the scan2pdf script mentioned in a comment... but seem to be unable to respond.

For those who care:

#!/bin/sh
# scan2pdf
#
# modprobe scanner if there is a fault.

while scanimage --mode binary --source "Automatic Document Feeder" --auto-eject=yes \
--resolution 300 -x 203 -y 280 >/tmp/s2pdf$$.pnm
do

    convert -page letter -compress fax /tmp/s2pdf$$.pnm /tmp/s2pdf$$.ps

cat /tmp/s2pdf$$.ps >>/tmp/s2pdfout$$.ps

done

if [ $1 != "" ]; then
        ps2pdf /tmp/s2pdfout$$.ps $1.pdf
else
        ps2pdf /tmp/s2pdfout$$.ps scan.pdf
fi

rm /tmp/s2pdfout$$.ps /tmp/s2pdf$$.pnm /tmp/s2pdf$$.ps
