Cuneiform is an OCR system. In addition to text recognition it also does layout analysis and text format recognition. Cuneiform supports several languages.
.IP "\-\-dotmatrix" 4
.IP "\-f \fIFORMAT\fR" 4
By default Cuneiform outputs plain text. There are several other output formats. To get a list run the command "cuneiform -f".
.IP "\-\-fax" 4
.IP "\-l \fILANGUAGE\fR" 4
By default Cuneiform recognizes English text. To change the language use the command line switch -l followed by your language string. To get a list of supported languages type "cuneiform -l".
.IP "\-o \fIOUTPUT\fR" 4
If you do not define an output file with the -o switch, Cuneiform writes the result to a file "cuneiform-out.[\fIFORMAT\fR]". The file extension depends on your output format.
