RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pnmpaste (redhat section 1)

pnmpaste(1)									      pnmpaste(1)

       pnmpaste - paste a rectangle into a portable anymap

       pnmpaste [-replace|-or|-and |-xor] frompnmfile x y [intopnmfile]

       Reads  two  portable  anymaps  as  input.  Inserts the first anymap into the second at the
       specified location, and produces a portable anymap the same size as the second as  output.
       If  the	second	anymap is not specified, it is read from stdin.  The x and y can be nega-
       tive, in which case they are interpreted relative to the right and bottom of  the  anymap,

       This  tool is most useful in combination with pnmcut.  For instance, if you want to edit a
       small segment of a large image, and your image editor cannot edit the large image, you can
       cut out the segment you are interested in, edit it, and then paste it back in.

       Another useful companion tool is pbmmask.

       pnmcomp	is,  a	more  general tool, except that it lacks the "or," "and," and "xor" func-
       tions.  pnmcomp allows you to specify an alpha mask in order to	have  only  part  of  the
       inserted  image	get  inserted.	 So the inserted pixels need not be a rectangle.  You can
       also have the inserted image be translucent, so the resulting image is a  mixture  of  the
       inserted image and the base image.

       The  optional  flag  specifies  the operation to use when doing the paste.  The default is
       -replace.  The other, logical operations are only allowed if both input	images	are  bit-
       maps.  These operations act as if white is TRUE and black is FALSE.

       All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.
