ppmpat


SYNOPSIS
       ppmpat           -gingham2|-g2|-gingham3|          -g3|-madras|-tartan|
       -poles|-squig|-camo| -anticamo width height

DESCRIPTION
       Produces a portable pixmap of the specified width and  height,  with  a
       pattern in it.

       This  program  is  mainly to demonstrate use of the ppmdraw routines, a
       simple but powerful drawing library.  See the  ppmdraw.h  include  file
       for more info on using these routines.  Still, some of the patterns can
       be rather pretty.  If you have a color workstation, something like ppm-
       pat -squig 300 300 | ppmquant 128 should generate a nice background.

OPTIONS
       The different flags specify various different pattern types:

       -gingham2
              A gingham check pattern.  Can be tiled.

       -gingham3
              A slightly more complicated gingham.  Can be tiled.

       -madras
              A madras plaid.  Can be tiled.

       -tartan
              A tartan plaid.  Can be tiled.

       -poles Color  gradients centered on randomly-placed poles.  May need to
              be run through ppmquant.

       -squig Squiggley tubular pattern.  Can be tiled.  May need  to  be  run
              through ppmquant.

       -camo  Camouflage pattern.  May need to be run through ppmquant.

       -anticamo
              Anti-camouflage  pattern  - like -camo, but ultra-bright colors.
              May need to be run through ppmquant.

       All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.
