palmtopnm


SYNOPSIS
       palmtopnm [-verbose] [-rendition N] [-showhist]
       [-forceplain] [pnmfile]
       palmtopnm -transparent [-verbose] [pnmfile]


DESCRIPTION
       Reads a Palm pixmap as input, from stdin or pnmfile.  Produces either a
       portable pixmap as output, or writes the value of the transparent color
       in the Palm pixmap to stdout.

OPTIONS
       -verbose
              Display various interesting information about the input file and
              process.

       -transparent
              If the Palm pixmap has a transparent color set,  the  RGB  value
              for that color will be written to stdout as in the form #RRGGBB,
              where RR, GG, and BB are two-digit hexadecimal numbers  indicat-
              ing  a  value between 0 and 255.  If no transparent color is set
              in the bitmap, nothing will be  output.   No  additional  output
              will be generated; no anymap will be output.

       -rendition N
              Palm  pixmaps  may  contain  several different renditions of the
              same pixmap, with different depths.  By default, palmtopnm oper-
              ates  on the first rendition (rendition number 1) in the pixmap.
              This switch allows you to operate on a different rendition.  The
              value  must  be  between  1  and the number of renditions in the
              pixmap, inclusive.

       -showhist
              Writes a histogram of colors in the input file to stderr.

       -forceplain
              Force the output anymap to be in ASCII 'plain' netpbm format.

BUGS
       An additional compression format, "packbits," has been added with  Pal-
       mOS 4.0.  This package should be updated to handle it.

       You  currently  cannot  generate an alpha mask if the Palm pixmap has a
       transparent color.  However, you can still do  this  with  ppmcolormask
       with a Netpbm pipe similar to:

       palmtopnm    pixmap.palm   |   ppmcolormask   `palmtopnm   -transparent
       pixmap.palm`
