The command prepares scan files before sending them to AMC-analyse(1):

The input images can be given either as arguments to, either as the name of a file which contains all the paths of the scan files.
--list list-file
gives the name of the file that optionally contains (one per line) the paths of the scan files. This file will be cleared and filled with the paths of the scan files after processing, so that the same path can be passed to as the --list-fichiers option value.

--vector-density density
sets the density used to convert vector graphics scans to bitmap files. Defaults to 300.
