pcxtoppm - convert a PCX file into a PPM image
pcxtoppm [-stdpalette] [-verbose] [pcxfile]
This program is part of Netpbm(1).
pcxtoppm reads a PCX file as input and produces a PPM image as output.
pcxtoppm recognizes the following PCX types:
· 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 uses a pre-
defined standard palette if the image does not provide one.
’Does not provide one’ means the palette in the PCX header 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.
This option causes pcxtoppm to use its predefined standard
palette even if the PCX image provides its own. This is mean-
ingful only for an image in the 16 color paletted PCX format.
The image may appear to provide its own palette but in fact be
created by a program too primitive to understand palettes that
created a random palette by accident.
