bmptoppm



SYNOPSIS
       bmptopnm [bmpfile]


DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a  Microsoft Windows or OS/2 BMP file as input.  Produces a PBM,
       PGM, or PNM image as output.  If the input is colormapped and  contains
       only  black  and white, the output is PBM.  If the input is colormapped
       and contains only black white and gray, the output is PGM.   Otherwise,
       the output is PPM.

       This  program  cannot  convert  BMP  files  with compressed (run length
       encoded) image data.  It recognizes the compression and issues an error
       message.

       This  program  cannot  convert  BMP  files with 16 bits per pixel (only
       because the author did not have a complete specification for them).  It
       recognizes the format and issues an error message.
