NAME

pbmtomacp – convert a portable bitmap into a MacPaint file

SYNOPSIS

pbmtomacp [-l left] [-r right] [-b bottom] [-t top] [pbmfile]

DESCRIPTION

Reads a portable bitmap as input. If no input-file is given, standard
input is assumed. Produces a MacPaint file as output.

The generated file is only the data fork of a picture. You will need a
program such as mcvert to generate a Macbinary or a BinHex file that
contains the necessary information to identify the file as a PNTG file
to MacOS.

OPTIONS

Left, right, bottom & top let you define a square into the pbm file,
that must be converted. Default is the whole file. If the file is too
large for a MacPaint-file, the bitmap is cut to fit from ( left, top ).

BUGS

The source code contains comments in a language other than English.
