SDI image converters (e.g. CGM to SVG, PDF, and PNG) are available on Linux and Windows 64 | 32-bit applications. Converters can be called from:
1) Convert basefile.cgm to newfile.svg, 2) remove background color, 3) pass fontnames instead of font metrics
Cgm2svg.exe c:\temp\basefile.cgm c:\work\newfile.svg –nobackground –fontname
All converters accept stream input and output to a stream, thus allowing them to be used as filters.
1) Convert PDF to CGM, 2) pipe the output to cgm2shape, 3) produce newfile.shp
Pdf2cgm.exe c:\work\pdffile.pdf stdout | cgm2shape stdin c:\work\newfile.shp
In effect, you are converting PDF to SHP by using two converters with an IO write to disk.
All converters have command line options, or switches. These switches provide alternate behavior for the filter.
