Dear experts

i  tried for the scaling of the image using y4mscaler
            ls -1 dimas* | sort | xargs -n1 ppmtoy4m -F 25:1 | /y4mscaler-0.6.2-bin/y4mscaler -I sar=1:1 -O sar=PAL -O size=704*576 | mpeg2enc -f 8 -o video1.m1v

but i have some errors
            ERROR: Could not read YUV4MPEG header: system error (failed read/write)!
           xargs: ppmtoy4m: terminated by signal 13

what is this xargs terminated by signal 13  means and how should i solve it  

 i have installed the y4mscaler ...but it also says
           /y4mscaler-0.6.2-bin/y4mscaler: No match.

could you please tell me what is this problem all about and how to tackle it.
thanks for your patience

The xargs command collects as many file names as will fit on a command line, and then executes the command you specified. You do however specify that you only want 1 argument (-n 1) on the command line. This means that ppmtoy4m is called with one item.

You should concatenate your PPM files first, and then pipe this concatenated file into ppmtoy4m:

cat dimas* | ppmtoy4m -F 25:1 | ...

You may have to do this in several steps if your command line gets too long. You probably don't have to sort the output of ls: It's already sorted, and so is the "dimas*" when you cat it into ppmtoy4m.
