EXAMPLES

Create a black and white LAVAFLOW stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2lava -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm

Create a color LAVAFLOW stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2lava -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
