gm-convert_file(1) converts files from within GNUmed


gm-convert_file <input file> <target mime type> <target file extension> <target filename>


gm-convert_file is a helper script which GNUmed uses to convert files from one format into another as needed.


input file
The file to convert.
target mime type
The mime type into which to convert the input file.
target file extension
The extension of the target filename

Some programs (say, convert of ImageMagick fame) use this (rather than the target mime type) to determine the target format.

target filename
The filename under which to store the converted file.
