3. Enter a command line

Please take a look at the following pattern and you will know what factors should be included in the command line when you rotate the pate and convert WMF to TIFF.

htmltools -rotate <int> <WMF file> <TIFF file>

Four factors are required to make up the command line.

  • the executable file ---- htmltools
  • the command ---- -rotate <int>, which can be used to rotate the page through the angle of 90,180, or 270 degree.( int refers to integer and the angle brackets <> are often used to mark the essential content.)
  • the input file ---- WMF file(s)
  • the output file ---- TIFF file(s).

The command line below is a good example which well illustrates the four factors. If you are careful, you will find that all the files are represented by directories rather than only the file names. This is because computer can hardly recognize the files if the exact folders where those files are placed in are not clearly directed.

D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe -rotate 270 C:\in\*.wmf D:\out\*.tiff

In this example,

  • D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe is the directory of the executable file. It indicates that the executable file htmltools.exe is in the folder htmltools on disk D.
  • -rotate 270 is the command that can be used to rotate the page counterclockwise through the angle of 90 degree. The number 270 can be substituted by 90 or 180.
  • C:\in\*.wmf is the directory of the input files. The wildcard * represents all the input WMF files in the folder in on disk C.
  • D:\out\*.tiff is the directory of output files. The file extension indicates that the output format should be TIFF. It indicates that all the output files should be export into the folder out on disk D.

You can replace all the directories of the files in the example with those in your computer. In addition, the number which stands for the angle degree can also be changed, according to your priorities.
