NAMEpbmtomda - convert a portable bitmap to a Microdesign .mda
SYNOPSISpbmtomda [-d][-i][--] [ pbmfile ]
DESCRIPTIONReads a portable bitmap file as input. Reads from stdin if input file is omitted. Produces a MicroDesign 2 area file (.MDA) as output.
- Halve the height of the output file, to compensate for the aspect ratio used in MicroDesign files.
- Invert the colours used.
- End of options (use this if the filename starts with "-")
BUGSThere's no way to produce files in MicroDesign 3 format. MD3 itself and mdatopbm(1) can read files in either format.
