Bug#572061: cuneiform: Input format not documented

retitle -1 cuneiform: suboptimal handling of multi-page documents
tags -1 + upstream
The input format is not documented.
It is documented, although admittedly not in a very prominent place.
If you have ImageMagick++ on your system, Cuneiform autodetects and
builds against it. Then Cuneiform can process any image that
ImageMagick knows how to open.
When a PDF file is given as the input, gs appeares on the process list
and after a while message "Killed" is written to the console withou
any additional information.
Don't do that then! :)
As far as I can tell, currently all the pages are rendered and loaded to
memory (if they fit, which is usually not the case) but only the first
one is actually OCRed.
