Colours are the deeds of light; its deeds and sufferings: thus considered we may expect from them some explanation respecting light itself.
The pspsvg utility converts the gradient files used by PaintShop Pro (which usually have the extension jgd or PspGradient) to the Scalar Vector Graphics (SVG) format.
The program will read from
stdin if a file is not specified as
the final argument, and write to
stdout if the
-o option is not specified.
The output is formatted for machines to read, rather than humans. A post-processor such as tidy(1) could be used in the latter case.

The author could find no public documentation for the PaintShop Pro gradient file format and so reverse-engineered it for the first version of this program. An improved analysis of the format by Olivier Berten was used for the present version.
The PaintShop Pro format can be read by Photoshop, but Photoshop's native (grd) gradient format cannot be read by this program. To convert Photoshop gradients, see the pssvg(1) documentation.
