       palmtopnm - convert a Palm pixmap into a portable anymap

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

       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.

              Display various interesting information about the input file and

              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.

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

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

       pnmtopalm(1), pnm(5)

       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

       This program was originally written as Tbmptopnm.c,  by  Ian  Goldberg.
       It  was heavily modified by Bill Janssen to add color, compression, and
       transparency function.
