       ximtoppm - convert an Xim file into a portable pixmap

       ximtoppm [--alphaout={alpha-filename,-}] [ximfile]

       Reads an Xim file as input.  Produces a portable pixmap as output.  The
       Xim toolkit is included in the contrib tree of the X.V11R4 release.

              ximtoppm creates a PGM (portable graymap)  file  containing  the
              alpha  channel  values  in  the input image.  If the input image
              doesn't contain an alpha channel, the alpha-filename  file  con-
              tains all zero (transparent) alpha values.  If you don't specify
              --alphaout, ximtoppm does not generate an alpha file, and if the
              input image has an alpha channel, ximtoppm simply discards it.

              If you specify - as the filename, ximtoppm writes the alpha out-
              put to Standard Output and discards the image.

              Actually, an Xim image can contain an arbitrary  fourth  channel
              --  it  need  not  be  an  Alpha channel.  ximtoppm extracts any
              fourth channel it finds as described above; it doesn't matter if
              it is an alpha channel or not.

              See pnmcomp(1) for one way to use the alpha output file.

       All options can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.
