NAME

ppmmake – create a pixmap of a specified size and color

SYNOPSIS

ppmmake color width height

DESCRIPTION

Produces a portable pixmap of the specified color, width, and height.

The color can be specified in five ways:

o A name, assuming that a pointer to an X11-style color names file
was compiled in.

o An X11-style hexadecimal specifier: rgb:r/g/b, where r g and b
are each 1- to 4-digit hexadecimal numbers.

o An X11-style decimal specifier: rgbi:r/g/b, where r g and b are
floating point numbers between 0 and 1.

o For backwards compatibility, an old-X11-style hexadecimal num‐
ber: #rgb, #rrggbb, #rrrgggbbb, or #rrrrggggbbbb.

o For backwards compatibility, a triplet of numbers separated by
commas: r,g,b, where r g and b are floating point numbers
between 0 and 1. (This style was added before MIT came up with
the similar rgbi style.)
