ppmtospu - convert a PPM image to an Atari Spectrum 512 image
All options can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix. You may use two hyphens
instead of one. You may separate an option name and its value with white space instead of
an equals sign.
This program is part of Netpbm(1)
This program converts from the PPM format to the uncompressed Spectrum 512 image format
used on Atari ST computers.
Input comes from the file you name with the ppmfile argument, or Standard Input by
default. Output goes to Standard Output.
The input must be 320 pixels wide by 200 pixels high. If you have an image of a different
size, you can use pamcut or pamscale to force it to these dimensions.
-d0 The program does no dithering.
-d2 The program uses a 2x2 ordered dither.
This is the default.
-d4 The program uses a 4x4 ordered dither.

This program was new in Netpbm 10.58 (March 2012).
But it was written in 1990. Steve Belczyk posted it along with sputoppm, spctoppm,
pi1toppm, and pi1toppm - all programs for dealing with Atari image formats - to
comp.sources.misc on July 15, 1990. For reasons that have been lost to history, all of
these entered the Netpbm (then Pbmplus) distribution except ppmtospu.
Georges Kesseler wondered In March 2012 why there was no counterpart to sputoppm in Netpbm
and searched the web, finding only one reference to ppmtopsu: the 1990 comp.sources.misc
posting, including the source code. He emailed the Netpbm maintainer suggesting it be
Bryan Henderson found the source code to be extremely primitive, not even using common
library code. So Bryan completely recoded it, but retained nearly all of the original
netpbm documentation 08 March 2012 Ppmtospu User Manual(0)
