NAME
ilbmtoppm - convert an ILBM file into a portable pixmap
SYNOPSIS
ilbmtoppm [-verbose] [-ignore<chunkID>] [-isham|-isehb] [-adjustcolors] [ILBMfile]
DESCRIPTION
Reads an IFF ILBM file as input. Produces a portable pixmap as output. Supported ILBM types are: Normal ILBMs with 1-16 planes. Amiga Extra_Halfbrite (EHB) Amiga HAM with 3-16 planes. 24 bit. Multiplatte (normal or HAM) pictures. Color map (BMHD + CMAP chunk only, nPlanes = 0). Unofficial direct color. 1-16 planes for each color component. Chunks used: BMHD, CMAP, CAMG (only HAM & EHB flags used), PCHG, BODY unofficial DCOL chunk to identify direct color ILBM Chunks ignored: GRAB, DEST, SPRT, CRNG, CCRT, CLUT, DPPV, DRNG, EPSF Other chunks (ignored but displayed in verbose mode): NAME, AUTH, (c), ANNO, DPI Unknown chunks are skipped.
OPTIONS
-verbose Give some information about the ILBM file. -ignore <chunkID> Skip a chunk. <chunkID> is the 4-letter IFF chunk identifier of the chunk to be skipped. -isham | -isehb Treat the input file as a HAM or Extra_Halfbrite picture, even if these flags or not set in the CAMG chunk (or if there is no CAMG chunk). -adjustcolors If all colors in the CMAP have a value of less then 16, ilbmtoppm assumes a 4-bit colormap and gives a warning. With this option the colormap is scaled to 8 bits.
BUGS
The multipalette PCHG BigLineChanges and Huffman decompression code is untested.
