pnmtofits(1)			     General Commands Manual			     pnmtofits(1)

NAME
       pnmtofits - convert a portable anymap into FITS format

SYNOPSIS
       pnmtofits [-max f] [-min f] [pnmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a portable anymap as input.  Produces a FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) file
       as output.  The resolution of the output file is either 8 bits/pixel,  or  16  bits/pixel,
       depending  on the value of maxval in the input file.  If the input file is a portable bit-
       map or a portable graymap, the output file consists of a single plane image (NAXIS  =  2).
       If  instead  the input file is a portable pixmap, the output file will consist of a three-
       plane image (NAXIS = 3, NAXIS3 = 3).  A full description of the FITS format can	be  found
       in Astronomy & Astrophysics Supplement Series 44 (1981), page 363.

OPTIONS
       Flags  -min  and  -max  can  be used to set DATAMAX, DATAMIN, BSCALE and BZERO in the FITS
       header, but do not cause the data to be rescaled.
