	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r600x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2hiperc -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p0 >

       Create a color HIPERC stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g5100x6600 -r600x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2hiperc -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p0 >testpage.zc
