Hello to you all,

My name is Charles Walmsley, and my e-mail is This is my first communication to this mailing list, list to which I am a very new member. My membership of this mailing list is almost be not quite as recent as my interest in making TIFF files on Unix (a difference of half an hour, I'd guess). My problem is a simple one - I don't know how to achieve my goal. My goal is to take an ASCII file - which contains nothing but printable ASCII plus the escape sequences I need to do font and character size selection on a Dataproducts LM 600 printer - and turn it into a TIFF file.

I don't need a nurse, I left home a while ago, I can read, programme, and do most of the other "clever" tricks we do in this business (including access the Internet) - but I am most awfully short of time. I would be very grateful if anybody (or everybody) out there would be kind enough to point me in the right direction. Very grateful indeed.

Thanks for your patience,
