Certainly less of an adventure than the procedure you describe. :-) I don't recall, did the original poster say he was using Windows?
No, he didn't. Is why I asked what operating system he uses, and next went from the assumption that he uses the OS that is used most.
Using GNU enscript and GNU Ghostscript the procedure would be similar to:
enscript --output=file.ps file.txt
gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -q -sOutputFile=file.tiff -sDEVICE=tiffg4 file.ps
If this is to be done often, a pipeline can be used to avoid a temporary file.
Additional options are available for enscript and Ghostscript to adjust the output.
OK, I see your point, this does indeed seem much shorter. I keep seeing this kinda weird magic I know nothing about, from you Unix men. Please forgive my ignorance, I'm still not accustomed to how you guys seem to pull off just about anything in two lines that I keep mistaking for quotes from some medieval book of spells and curses.
