-o output
If you do not define an output file with the -o switch, Cuneiform writes the result to
a file ‘cuneiform-out.format’. The file extension depends on your output format.


Cuneiform can process any single-page image that GraphicsMagick knows how to open. Please
consult the gm(1) manual page for the comprehensive list of supported image formats.
