NAME
       pamtopam - copy PAM image

SYNOPSIS
       pamtopam

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pamtopam  simply copies a PAM image from Standard Input to Standard Output.  This may seem
       an unnecessary duplication of cat, but remember that a PAM program can read a PBM, PGM, or
       PPM  image  as  if it were PAM.	So pamtopam can read either a PBM, PGM, PPM, or PAM image
       and produce a PAM image as output.

       Even that is of limited usefulness because of the fact that almost any  program	to  which
       you  would  feed the resulting PAM image could also just take the original image directly.
       However, sometimes you really want a true PAM image.

       You can do a more general job of translating PAM/PNM to PAM with pamchannel.
