       rawtoppm - convert raw RGB bytes into a portable pixmap

       rawtoppm [-headerskip N] [-rowskip N] [-rgb|-rbg|-grb |-gbr|-brg|-bgr ]
       [-interpixel|-interrow] width height [imagedata]

       Reads raw RGB bytes as input.  Produces a portable  pixmap  as  output.
       The  input  file  is just RGB bytes.  You have to specify the width and
       height on the command line, since the program obviously can't get  them
       from  the file.  The maxval is assumed to be 255.  If the resulting im-
       age is upside down, run it through pnmflip -tb .

              If the file has a header, you can use this flag to skip over it.

              If there is padding at the ends of the rows,  you  can  skip  it
              with this flag.

       -rgb -rbg -grb -gbr -brg -bgr
              These flags let you specify alternate color orders.  The default
              is -rgb.

       -interpixel -interrow
              These flags let you specify how the colors are interleaved.  The
              default is -interpixel, meaning interleaved by pixel.  A byte of
              red, a byte of green, and a byte of blue, or whatever color  or-
              der  you  specified.  -interrow means interleaved by row - a row
              of red, a row of green, a row of  blue,  assuming  standard  rgb
              color  order.   An  -interplane flag  - all the red pixels, then
              all the green, then all the blue - would be  an  obvious  exten-
              sion,  but is not implemented.  You could get the same effect by
              splitting the file into three parts (perhaps using dd),  turning
              each part into a PGM file with rawtopgm, and then combining them
              with rgb3toppm.
