pamfile General Commands Manual pamfile

NAME

pamfile – describe a Netpbm (PAM or PNM) file

SYNOPSIS

pamfile [-allimages] [file …]

DESCRIPTION

Reads one or more Netpbm files as input. Writes out short descriptions
of the image type, size, etc. This is mostly for use in shell scripts,
so the format is not particularly pretty.

OPTIONS

-allimages
Describe every image in each input file. Without this option,
pamfile describes only the first image in each input file. Note
that before July 2000, a file could not contain more than one
image and many programs ignore all but the first.

SEE ALSO
