  • In the “Run” dialog box,
    • A. Enter “cmd”;
    • B. And next, click “OK” to run the command prompt window.


2. Enter a command line

The command line is supposed to conclude four factors. Look at the following pattern,

htmltools -bitcount <int> <HTML file> <PCX file>

  • htmltools ---- the executable file, which refers to htmltools.exe in the folder htmltools after you decompress the install file.
  • -bitcount <int> ---- the command that can be used to set color depth. The angle brackets enclose the essential content. int means integer, which allows 1, 8 and 24 here.
  • <HTML file> ---- the input HTML file.
  • <PCX file> ---- the output PCX file.

E:\htmltools\htmltools.exe -bitcount 8 D:\in\radio.html c:\out\radio.pcx

  • E:\htmltools\htmltools.exe ----the directory of the executable file htmltools.exe, in the folder htmltools on disc E. If it is necessary, you can change the directory.
  • -bitcount 8 ---- the command for specifying 1-bit as the output PCX file. The number can be changed.
  • D:\in\radio.html ---- the directory of the input HTML file, called radio in the folder in on disk D. And it can be replaced.
  • C:\out\radio.pcx represents the directory of the output file radio in the format PCX, placed in the folder out on disk C.

3. Press “Enter”
