Potrace is a tool for tracing a bitmap, which means, transforming a
 bitmap into a smooth, scalable image.  The input is a bitmap (PBM,
 PGM, PPM, or BMP), and the output is one of several vector file
 formats.  A typical use is to create SVG or PDF files from scanned
 data, such as company or university logos, handwritten notes, etc.
 The resulting image is not "jaggy" like a bitmap, but smooth. It can
 then be rendered at any resolution.

 Potrace can currently produce the following output formats: SVG, PDF,
 EPS, PostScript, DXF, GeoJSON, PGM (for easy antialiasing of
 pixel-based images), Gimppath, and XFig. Additional backends might be
 added in the future.

 A separate program, mkbitmap, is also provided. This program can act
 as a pre-processor for Potrace, applying scaling and various filters
 to an image before converting it to a bitmap. This is useful for
 potracing greyscale and color images.
