       winicontoppm  -  convert  a  Windows  .ico file into 1 or more portable
       pixmap files

       winicontoppm [-writeands] [-allicons|-bestqual] [-multippm]  [-verbose]
       [iconfile] [ppmdestfile]

       Reads a Microsoft Windows .ico file, converts it to one or more ppms.

       A  Windows icon contains 1 or more images, at different resolutions and
       color  depths.   Each  image  has  an  'and'   mask,   which   contains
       transparancy data.

       By  default,  the  output  goes  to  Standard  Output.   If you specify
       ppmdestfile, output goes into one or more files named as  follows.   If
       it's  just  one  file  (i.e.  you specify the -multippm option or don't
       specify -allicons), the file specification is ppmdestfile.ppm.  If it's
       multiple   files,  their  file  specifications  are  ppmdestfile_1.ppm,
       ppmdestfile_2.ppm, etc.

       When you specify the -writeands option, the filenames above  are  modi-
       fied  to  include  the string xor as in ppmdestfile_xor.ppm or ppmdest-

       winicontoppm can convert images with 1, 4, 8, 24 or 32 bits  per  pixel

              For  each icon written, also write the 'and' (transparancy) mask
              as a seperate PBM file.  It's  name  is  of  the  form  ppmdest-
              file_and.pbm or ppmdestfile_and_1.pbm.

              Extract all images from the .ico file.

              Extract  only the best quality (largest, then highest bpp) image
              from the .ico file.

              Write all ppms to a single file.
