       pnmdepth - change the maxval in a portable anymap

       pnmdepth newmaxval [pnmfile]

       Reads  a  portable anymap as input.  Scales all the pixel values, and writes out the image
       with the new maxval.  Scaling the colors down to a smaller maxval will result in some loss
       of information.

       Be  careful  of off-by-one errors when choosing the new maxval.	For instance, if you want
       the color values to be five bits wide, use a maxval of 31, not 32.

       One important use of pnmdepth is to convert a new format 2-byte-per-sample PNM file to the
       older  1-byte-per-sample  format.   Before April 2000, essentially all raw (binary) format
       PNM files had a maxval less than 256 and one byte per sample, and many programs	may  rely
       on  that.  If you specify a newmaxval less than 256, the resulting file should be readable
       by any program that worked with PNM files before April 2000.
