    Lightbulb convert2 - Convert image file from/to - bmp png jpg gif pdf - format

    Here is another script I found on the internet, made some modifications and am positing here for your use and enjoyment. Originally written by Dawid Michalczyk, it consisted of three separate script files for three graphic conversions. I have modified it to support five types and really it could support a lot more, you need only try it to see.

    To use convert2 copy and past the following text into a file in your home area bin folder as the file convert2 (~/bin/convert2).

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    #: Title       : Convert2

    To make the script usable, open up a terminal session and type the following command:

    Code:
     chmod +x ~/bin/convert2
    To use convert2, open another terminal session and enter convert2 with the following syntax:

    Code:
    Convert2 [type] [-vhlr] <file> [file...]
    If you request the help command (convert2 -h), here is what you get:

    Code:
    Convert2 1.00 - Convert image file from/to - bmp png jpg jpg pdf - format
    Usage: Convert2 [type] [-vhlr] <file> [file...]
    Requires: standard GNU commands, ImageMagick
    Type: bmp, png, jpg, gif or pdf: default Type is jpg

         -v, verbose
         -h, usage and options (this help)
         -l, see this script - Enter Q to Quit
    convert2 presently supports the image types IMAGES_="bmp png jpg gif pdf" as set by the value IMAGES_. You may add new ones to see if it is also supported. Don't forget to modify the help information if you add something new. Don't forget to let use know about it here.

    I don't know why you're using mogrify. Maybe it has some advantages over convert. Otherwise convert is another member of the ImageMagick suite of tools and the syntax is just as simple as:
    Code:
    convert file.png file.xpm
    (that will convert a .png into .xpm for example). I use it quite often to create pixmap icons for older wms.

    Hello please_try_again. The script file I found was built around mogrify and seemed simple, producing good quality converted files and it seems fast as well. It can be used to convert multiple files at the same time if you wish. Since the script was six years old, is convert newer or produce better quality conversions? The two programs (mogrify & convert) don't use the same syntax, so some modifications to the script would be required to make convert work.

    Again scripts presented here are designed to show different ways to perform tasks and I thought that the person that wrote this one originally seemed plenty cleaver as so I decided to use it here. I also was able to understand what was being done which helps. I will mess around with the convert program as you suggest and thanks for the suggestion.

    I cannot find the list of supported formats but ImageMagick knows quite a lot. You don't have to limit the script to those five formats.
    Such a single command will convert all files in .xpm
    Code:
    for pic in * ; do convert $pic ${pic%.*}.xpm ; done
    So, in a script, where the first argument would be the destination format, that would be:

    Code:
    #! /bin/bash
    
    type=$1
    shift
    for pic in $* ; do
           convert $pic ${pic%.*}.$type
    done
    Notice that the source format doesn't matter.
    I don't know if mogrify does a better job. The syntax is a little bit easier for multiple files conversion but not much.

    So this is a quick and simple script file to convert between graphics formats I agree:

    Code:
    #! /bin/bash
    
    type=$1
    shift
    for pic in $* ; do
           convert $pic ${pic%.*}.$type
    done
    Your script does not include anything to qualify the input format is correct or present help on what that format might be. All that means is that you can boil down any script to the line or couple of lines that does the real work. Adding in all of that other stuff is what can take a lot of work. That does not mean that quick and simple is not good, but it is something you do for your self as opposed to passing out to others. Of course if you have a memory as short as mine, I need the help as well so I can remember just what I was thinking in the first place. I was also trying to limit the format to things known to work with the ability to keep adding in more as they are tested. This is something the new scripting writing person might do with it on their own.

    I wouldn't call it a script. It was just an example. But you don't check the input format either, so the following produces an error from mogrify:

    Code:
    ./convert2 jpg test
    mogrify: Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x23 0x21 `test' @ error/jpeg.c/EmitMessage/233.
    Or did I miss something in the syntax of this script?

    So, what kind of file is test since it has no file extension?

    Code:
    ./convert2 jpg test
    mogrify: Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x23 0x21 `test' @ error/jpeg.c/EmitMessage/233.
    I am not suggesting that all errors are found by the script, but it does some more checking than none. Of course, what are we arguing over anyway? You are obviously a master bash script file writer while I am on the other end, trying to learn bash scripting while coming up with something that might be useful.

    What caught my eye on this script was the ability to check for different command line options using the case command and the usage of the shift command. When I saw that it also converted image types, something I do all of the time, I thought it was a perfect script to work on and expand on.

    Now I am trying to keep the pressure up here in the scripting department. I need for you to start rowing in the same direction as I am. I tried to do my part here master script writer. Its your turn to come up with another script as useful as findgrub was.

    Wow RedDwarf, it will take forever to code in everything it supports it would seem. Thanks very much for the information. By the way, did you look at the mmcheck script I put together using your 10-steps guide? It really helped me out and automating it seemed like the right thing to do. I can't thank you enough for putting together that 10-steps thread to help us all out.

    Thank You,

    Hi James
    Might be time for to look at something like perl, I'm sure there is a
    cpan module to do a lot of the work for you...

    There is also a script (trying to remember where) that will download a
    module from cpan and build a spec file and make an rpm (then could
    upload to OBS) for installing into openSUSE.

    You should also consider making your scripts into and rpm, then you
    could update and push out to users.
