[hylafax-users] Suggestions for tiff to pnm conversion: optical recognition forwarding script


I am looking for a good script for tiff to pnm conversions.  Right now I have 
tried tifftopnm but it does not do a good job, and I have also tried tiff2ps 
followed by pstopnm but again the output is not great.

Here is the reason:  I would like to use gocr (optical recognition) in a 
script I have written to deduce incoming fax reception people and then if the 
weighted average of the search is closest to a person or person's name, 
automatically forward the fax to the email recipient.

I have it working in theory and also in pseudo-practice (with files that are 
readable by gocr).  However, most of the translation scripts do not maintain 
very good quality to the converted image.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
