I'm trying to find a way to create OpenEXR (.exr) files using pfstools from—say—three bracketed JPEG exposures. I'm familiar with enfuse and other tools.

How can I create EXR files from the command line using Linux?

Just guessing (I've never used pfstools, but I once maintained a man page set as a technical writer), you could probably use pipes and commands like the following example:

pfsinme*.jpg |pfshdrcalibrate -r linear -v |pfsoutresult.exr

This reads all the .jpg files in the current directory, merges them into an HDR image (with linear response) and saves the output as an Open EXR image.
