ppmtopict - convert a PPM image to a Macintosh PICT file
This program is part of Netpbm(1).
ppmtopict reads a PPM image as input and produces a Macintosh PICT file
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 PICT file
Even though PICT supports 2 and 4 bits per pixel, ppmtopict always gen-
erates an 8 bits per pixel file.
The picture size field is correct only if the output is to a file since
writing into this field requires seeking backwards on a file. However
the PICT documentation seems to suggest that this field is not critical
anyway since it is only the lower 16 bits of the picture size.
