1. NAME

pbmtomacp - convert a portable bitmap into a MacPaint file

2. SYNOPSIS

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

3. 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.

4. 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 ).

5. BUGS

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