NAME

pnmtofits - convert a portable anymap into FITS format  

SYNOPSIS

pnmtofits [-max f] [-min f] [pnmfile]  

DESCRIPTION

Reads a portable anymap as input. Produces a FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) file as output. The resolution of the output file is either 8 bits/pixel, or 16 bits/pixel, depending on the value of maxval in the input file. If the input file is a portable bitmap or a portable graymap, the output file consists of a single plane image (NAXIS = 2). If instead the input file is a portable pixmap, the output file will consist of a three-plane image (NAXIS = 3, NAXIS3 = 3). A full description of the FITS format can be found in Astronomy & Astrophysics Supplement Series 44 (1981), page 363.  

OPTIONS

Flags -min and -max can be used to set DATAMAX, DATAMIN, BSCALE and BZERO in the FITS header, but do not cause the data to be rescaled.
