NAME

pbmtomacp - convert a portable bitmap into a MacPaint file  

SYNOPSIS

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

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.  

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 ).  

BUGS

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