NAME
       bmptopnm - convert a BMP file into a PBM, PGM, or PNM image

SYNOPSIS
       bmptopnm

       [-verbose]

       [bmpfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       bmptopnm reads a Microsoft Windows or OS/2 BMP file as input.  and produces a PBM, PGM, or
       PNM image as output.  If the input is colormapped and contains only black and  white,  the
       output  is  PBM.   If the input is colormapped and contains only black white and gray, the
       output is PGM.  Otherwise, the output is PPM.

       bmptopnm understands BMP files compressed with run length encoding (RLE4/RLE8), but not if
       that  encoding  includes  a  'delta'  (which  is rare).	bmptopnm recognizes the delta and
       issues an error message.

       bmptopnm cannot convert BMP files compressed with JPEG or PNG encoding.	It recognizes the
       compression  and  issues  an error message.  Before Netpbm 10.32 (February 2006), bmptopnm
       couldn't convert RLE BMP files either.

       Before Netpbm 10.18 (September 2003), this program could not convert BMP images	with  the
       BI_BITFIELDS  format  ("compression  type").   It  would recognize the format and issue an
       error message.

       bmptopnm cannot convert OS/2 BMP files with 16 bits per pixel (only because the author did
       not have a complete specification for them).  It recognizes the format and issues an error
       message.  Before Netpbm 10.16 (June 2003), it also could not  convert  Windows  BMP  files
       with 16 bits per pixel.
