NAME

pbmtomda – convert a portable bitmap to a Microdesign .mda

SYNOPSIS

pbmtomda [-d][-i][–] [ pbmfile ]

DESCRIPTION

Reads a portable bitmap file as input. Reads from stdin if input file
is omitted. Produces a MicroDesign 2 area file (.MDA) as output.

OPTIONS

-d Halve the height of the output file, to compensate for the
aspect ratio used in MicroDesign files.

-i Invert the colours used.

— End of options (use this if the filename starts with “-“)

BUGS

There’s no way to produce files in MicroDesign 3 format. MD3 itself and
mdatopbm can read files in either format.
