       ppmpat - make a pretty pixmap

       ppmpat  -gingham2|-g2|-gingham3| -g3|-madras|-tartan| -poles|-squig|-camo| -anticamo width

       Produces a portable pixmap of the specified width and height, with a pattern in it.

       This program is mainly to demonstrate use of the ppmdraw routines, a simple  but  powerful
       drawing	library.   See	the ppmdraw.h include file for more info on using these routines.
       Still, some of the patterns can be rather pretty.  If you have a color workstation,  some-
       thing like ppmpat -squig 300 300 | ppmquant 128 should generate a nice background.

       The different flags specify various different pattern types:

	      A gingham check pattern.	Can be tiled.

	      A slightly more complicated gingham.  Can be tiled.

	      A madras plaid.  Can be tiled.

	      A tartan plaid.  Can be tiled.

       -poles Color  gradients	centered  on  randomly-placed  poles.  May need to be run through

       -squig Squiggley tubular pattern.  Can be tiled.  May need to be run through ppmquant.

       -camo  Camouflage pattern.  May need to be run through ppmquant.

	      Anti-camouflage pattern - like -camo, but ultra-bright colors.  May need to be  run
	      through ppmquant.

       All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.

       Some of the patterns are from "Designer's Guide to Color 3" by Jeanne Allen.
