NAME
       ppmtopgm - convert a PPM image to a PGM image

SYNOPSIS
       ppmtopgm

       [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       ppmtopgm  reads	a  PPM as input and produces a PGM as output.  The output is a 'black and
       white' rendering of the original image, as in a black and white photograph.  The quantiza-
       tion formula ppmtopgm uses is g = .299 r + .587 g + .114 b.

       Note that although there is a pgmtoppm program, it is not necessary for simple conversions
       from pgm to ppm , because any ppm program can read pgm (and  pbm  )  files  automatically.
       pgmtoppm  is  for  colorizing a pgm file.  Also, see ppmtorgb3 for a different way of con-
       verting color to gray.  And ppmdist generates a grayscale image from a color image, but in
       a  way that makes it easy to differentiate the original colors, not necessarily a way that
       looks like a black and white photograph.

QUOTE
       Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
       Removes the colors from our sight
       Red is gray, and yellow white
       But we decide which is right
       And which is a quantization error.
