- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
sam2p is a UNIX command line utility written in ANSI C++ that converts many 
raster (bitmap) image formats into Adobe PostScript or PDF files and several 
other formats. The images are not vectorized. sam2p gives full control to 
the user to specify standards-compliance, compression, and bit depths. In 
some cases sam2p can compress an image 100 times smaller than the PostScript 
output of many other common image converters. sam2p provides ZIP, RLE and 
LZW (de)compression filters even on Level1 devices.
