create face.1

Adding a face:

cpu% jpg -c myface.jpg  | iconv -c m8 | resample -x 48 -y 48 > myface.1
cpu% jpg -c myface.jpg  | resample -x 100 | crop -b 255 255 255 -i -30 | mug > myface.1
An optional example:jpg -c myface.jpg | iconv -c k4 | resample -x 48 -y 48 > myface.1

quality control

Check the results with page:

cpu% page myface.1
xIf myface.1 looks good, install it as /lib/face/people/$user.1, in the /lib/face/people directory.

Then carefully edit /lib/face/people/.dict, adding the line:

sdf.org/$user $user.1
xThe .dict file is maintained in alphabetical order.
cpu% acme /lib/face/people/.dict

face location

This is a people face, example only:

cpu% jpg -c USER.jpg  | resample -x 100 | crop -b 255 255 255 -i -30 | mug > /lib/face/people/USER.1

This is a domains face, example only:

cpu% jpg -c sdf.jpg  | resample -x 100 | crop -b 255 255 255 -i -30 | mug > /lib/face/domains/sdf.org.1

examples (in another format):

cpu% cd /lib/face/48x48x1
cpu% page .dict

9p mail

Create the /mail/box/$user with mail -c. This is only necessary once; it creates the $user mbox.

cpu% mail -c

Start acme to access the mbox.
