NAME
       pcxtoppm - convert a PCX file into a portable pixmap

SYNOPSIS
       pcxtoppm [-stdpalette] [pcxfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a  PCX  file  as input.  Produces a portable pixmap as output.  Supported PCX types

	      "Packed pixel" format (1, 2 or  4  bits/pixel,  1  plane)  or  bitplane  format  (1
	      bit/pixel,  1-4  planes).  The program checks the colormap and uses an internal one
	      if the provided colormap is completely black.

       Colormapped files with 256 colors
	      8 bits/pixel, 1 plane, colormap at the end of the file.

       24bit truecolor files
	      24bit RGB: 8 bits/pixel, 3 planes.

       32bit truecolor files
	      24bit RGB + 8bit intensity: 8 bits/pixel, 4 planes.

OPTIONS
