Potrace is a utility for tracing a bitmap, which means, transforming a bitmap
into a smooth, scalable image. The input is a portable bitmap (PBM), and the
default output is an encapsulated PostScript file (EPS). A typical use is to
create EPS 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.
