NAME
       pcxtoppm - convert a PCX file into a PPM image

SYNOPSIS
       pcxtoppm [-stdpalette] [-verbose] [pcxfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       pcxtoppm reads a PCX file as input and produces a PPM image as output.

       pcxtoppm recognizes the following PCX types:

       o      Colormapped files with 2-16 colors.

	      'Packed  pixel'  format  (1,  2  or  4  bits/pixel,  1 plane) or bitplane format (1
	      bit/pixel, 1-4 planes).  The program uses a  predefined  standard  palette  if  the
	      image  does  not	provide one.  'Does not provide one' means the palette in the PCX
	      header is completely black.

       o      Colormapped files with 256 colors.

	      8 bits/pixel, 1 plane, colormap at the end of the file.

       o      24bit truecolor files.

	      24bit RGB: 8 bits/pixel, 3 planes.

       o      32bit truecolor files.

	      24bit RGB + 8bit intensity: 8 bits/pixel, 4 planes.

OPTIONS
       -stdpalette
	      This option causes pcxtoppm to use its predefined standard palette even if the  PCX
	      image  provides  its  own.   This  is  meaningful only for an image in the 16 color
	      paletted PCX format.

	      The image may appear to provide its own palette but in fact be created by a program
	      too primitive to understand palettes that created a random palette by accident.
