NAME
       pbmclean - flip isolated pixels in portable bitmap

SYNOPSIS
       pbmclean [-minneighbors=N] [-black|-white] [pbmfile]

       You  can  use  the  minimum  unique  abbreviation of the options.  You can use two hyphens
       instead of one.	You can separate an option name from its value with white  space  instead
       of an equals sign.

       Before December 2001, pbmclean accepted -N instead of -minneighbors.

DESCRIPTION
       pbmclean cleans up a PBM image of random specs.	It reads a PBM image as input and outputs
       a PBM that is the same as the input except with every pixel which has less than N  identi-
       cal neighbours inverted.

       The default for N is 1 - only completely isolated pixels are flipped.

       (A  value  of N greater than 8 generates a completely inverted image (but use pnminvert to
       do that) -- or a completely white or completely black image  with  the  -black  or  -white
       option).

       pbmclean considers the area beyond the edges of the image to be white.  (This matters when
       you consider pixels right on the edge of the image).

       You can use pbmclean to clean up "snow" on bitmap images.

OPTIONS
       -black

       -white Flip pixels of the specified color.  By default, if you specify neither -black  nor
	      -white,  pbmclean  flips	both  black and white pixels which do not have sufficient
	      identical neighbors.  If you specify -black, pbmclean leaves the white pixels alone
	      and  just  erases  isolated  black pixels.  Vice versa for -white.  You may specify
	      both -black and -white to get the same as the default behavior.
