That's probably a fair assessment. However, as I explained in the other thread, I originally wrote this on a Linux machine. I've since updated the script to use ksh since it works in that shell, too.

Thanks for the tip. I'll post an updated version of this script once I've taken time to RTFM. It seems gm convert doesn't have exactly the same options as convert.

I never worried too much about that when I was using Linux, but now that I've switched to BSD I suppose I should be more careful. Thanks for taking time to examine my little script.
