pcxtoppm – convert a PCX file into a portable pixmap
pcxtoppm [-stdpalette] [-verbose] [pcxfile]
Reads a PCX file as input. Produces a portable pixmap as output. Sup‐
ported PCX types are:
Colormapped files with 2-16 colors.
“Packed pixel” format (1, 2 or 4 bits/pixel, 1 plane) or bit‐
plane format (1 bit/pixel, 1-4 planes). The program checks the
colormap and uses an internal one if the provided colormap is
Colormapped files with 256 colors
8 bits/pixel, 1 plane, colormap at the end of the file.
24bit truecolor files
24bit RGB: 8 bits/pixel, 3 planes.
32bit truecolor files
24bit RGB + 8bit intensity: 8 bits/pixel, 4 planes.
Enforce the use of the internal colormap for files with 16 col‐
ors or less.
