PACKAGE DESCRIPTION
===================

Homepage: http://freecode.com/projects/potrace
License : GPL

Utility for tracing a bitmap, which means, transforming a bitmap into
a smooth, scalable image. The input is a bitmap (PBM, PGM, PPM, or BMP
format), and the default output is an encapsulated PostScript file
(EPS). A typical use is to create EPS files from scanned data, such as
company or university logos, handwritten notes, etc. The resulting
image is not "jaggy" like a bitmap, but smooth. It can then be
rendered at any resolution.
