     1.9  Tumble is a utility to construct PDF files from one or more image
    1.10 -files.  Currently the only input image format supported is black &
    1.11 -white TIFF files, which may be either single- or multi-page files.  In
    1.12 -the future additional file formats will be supported, including gray
    1.13 -scale and color.  Black and white images will be encoded in the PDF
    1.14 -output using lossless Group 4 fax compression (ITU-T recommendation
    1.15 -T.6).  This provides a very good compression ratio for text and line
