       By default, the image format of `file' is determined by its magic  num-
       ber.   To  specify a particular image format, precede the filename with
       an image format name and a colon (i.e. ps:image) or specify  the  image
       type as the filename suffix (i.e. image.ps).  Specify 'file' as '-' for
       standard input or output.
