1. NAME

pbmtomda - convert a portable bitmap to a Microdesign .mda

2. SYNOPSIS

pbmtomda [ -d ][ -i ][ -- ] [ pbmfile ]

3. 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.

4. 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 "-")

5. BUGS

There's no way to produce files in MicroDesign 3 format. MD3 itself and mdatopbm(1) can read files in either format.
