Hierarchy of transform options

InfoPrint Manager assigns a hierarchy to its use of options and configuration-file information when it runs the TIFF, JPEG, or GIF transform program. This lists the order in which InfoPrint uses command–line options and information specified in configuration files:

  1. Any values you specify on the command line, including values in the configuration files you specify with the -C option.

    InfoPrint Manager commands process options from left to right. If you enter the same option more than once, InfoPrint Manager uses the last occurrence of the flag to determine the value to use. For example, if you specify this command:

    tiff2afp -Cconfig.file -r240 -r300 myfile.tif
    the tiff2afp command transforms the file using 300-pel resolution. InfoPrint Manager ignores the resolution value specified in the configuration file config.file and the first -r240 flag and value.

  2. Values specified in the default transform command configuration file named in Default TIFF, JPEG, and GIF Transform Configuration Files.
  3. Default values that are built into InfoPrint Manager. These are the same as the transform defaults.
