NAMEppmtowinicon - convert 1 or more portable pixmaps into a Windows .ico file
SYNOPSISppmtowinicon [-andpgms] [-output output.ico] [ppmfiles...]
DESCRIPTIONReads one or more portable pixmaps as input. Produces a Microsoft Windows .ico file as output.
A Windows icon contains 1 or more images, at different resolutions and color depths.
Microsoft recommends including at least the following formats in each icon.
16 x 16 - 4 bpp
32 x 32 - 4 bpp
48 x 48 - 8 bpp
If this option is given, every other file is read as an alpha mask to
be used by windows for transparancy data for the previous image.
(These are set to blank by default). The alpha mask is a PGM image,
where any value less than or equal to the maxval means transparent,
and anything greater than the maxval means opaque. Note that as with
all Netpbm programs, you may use a PBM file here and it will be used
as if it were the equivalent PGM.
- -output output.ico
File to write. By default, the icon is written to stdout.
