ppmtopict


SYNOPSIS
       ppmtopict [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a  portable  pixmap as input.  Produces a Macintosh PICT file as
       output.

       The generated file is only the data fork of a picture.  You will need a
       program  such  as  mcvert to generate a Macbinary or a BinHex file that
       contains the necessary information to identify the file as a PICT  file
       to MacOS.

       Even though PICT supports 2 and 4 bits per pixel, ppmtopict always gen-
       erates an 8 bits per pixel file.

BUGS
       The picture size field is only correct if the output is to a file since
       writing  into this field requires seeking backwards on a file.  However
       the PICT documentation seems to suggest that this field is not critical
       anyway since it is only the lower 16 bits of the picture size.
