       xpmtoppm - convert an X11 pixmap into a portable pixmap

       xpmtoppm [--alphaout={alpha-filename,-}] [-verbose] [xpmfile]

       Reads an X11 pixmap (XPM version 1 or 3) as input.  Produces a PPM file
       as output.

              xpmtoppm creates a PBM file containing the transparency mask for
              the  image.   If  the  input  image doesn't contain transparency
              information, the alpha-filename file contains all white (opaque)
              alpha  values.   If  you don't specify --alphaout, xpmtoppm does
              not generate an alpha file, and if the input  image  has  trans-
              parency information, xpmtoppm simply discards it.

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

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

              xpmtoppm prints information about  its  processing  on  Standard

       The  support  to  XPM version 3 is limited. Comments can only be single
       lines and there must be for every pixel a default colorname for a color
       type visual.
