ppmtouil – convert a portable pixmap into a Motif UIL icon file


ppmtouil [-name uilname] [ppmfile]


Reads a portable pixmap as input. Produces a Motif UIL icon file as

If the program was compiled with an rgb database specified, and a RGB
value from the ppm input matches a RGB value from the database, then
the corresponding color name mnemonic is printed in the UIL’s colormap.
If no rgb database was compiled in, or if the RGB values don’t match,
then the color will be printed with the #RGB, #RRGGBB, #RRRGGGBBB, or
#RRRRGGGGBBBB hexadecimal format.


-name Allows you to specify the prefix string which is printed in the
resulting UIL output. If not specified, will default to the
filename (without extension) of the ppmfile argument. If -name
is not specified and no ppmfile is specified (i.e. piped input),
the prefix string will default to the string “noname”.

All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.
