       pamtosrf - convert a sequence of Netpbm images to a SRF image file

       pamtosrf [-verbose] [netpbmfile]

       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pamtosrf reads a Netpbm image stream as input and produces a an SRF image file as  output.
       I  don't  know exactly what SRF is, but on popular use of it is in Garmin vehicle informa-
       tion files, which tell a GPS receiver how to depict a vehicle on its display.

       An SRF file can contain multiple images; each image in a multi-image Netpbm  input  stream
       becomes one image in the SRF.

       pamtosrf  does not care how many images there are or what their dimensions or content are.
       However, a Garmin vehicle information file has specific requirements, so if you don't make
       your Netpbm input conform, neither will your SRF output.  For such a file, you should have
       two image: the first for 3D oblique views of the  vehicle  and  the  second  for  overhead
       views.	Each  image  is  a  horizontal concatenation of 36 square images, each rotated 10
       degrees from the previous, thereby covering the full 360 degree circle.	You could  create
       this concatenation with pnmcat -lr and you could create the invidual views with pnmrotate.

       One way to use pamtosrf is to get an SRF file, convert it to PAM with srftopam, manipulate
       it, then convert it back with pamtosrf.

       netpbmfile is the input stream, which defaults to Standard Input.   Output  is  always  on
       Standard Output.

	      Issue informational messages about the input and the conversion process.
