NAME
       ppmtopict - convert a PPM image to a Macintosh PICT file

SYNOPSIS
       ppmtopict

       [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1)

       ppmtopict reads a PPM image as input and produces a Macintosh PICT file as output.

       The  generated  file  is only the data fork of a picture.  You will need a program such as
       mcvert to generate a Macbinary or a BinHex file that contains the necessary information to
       identify the file as a PICT file to MacOS.

       Even though PICT can have 2 and 4 bits per pixel, ppmtopict always generates an 8 bits per
       pixel file.

LIMITATIONS
       The picture size field is correct only if the output is to a file since writing into  this
       field  requires seeking backwards on a file.  However the PICT documentation seems to sug-
       gest that this field is not critical anyway since it is only the lower 16 bits of the pic-
       ture size.
