NAME
       ppmtobmp - convert a portable pixmap into a BMP file

SYNOPSIS
       ppmtobmp [-windows] [-os2] [-bpp=bits_per_pixel] [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a  portable pixmap as input.  Produces a Microsoft Windows or OS/2 BMP file as out-
       put.

OPTIONS
       All options can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix and you can  use	a  double
       dash in place of the single dash, GNU-style.

       -windows
	      Tells the program to produce a Microsoft Windows BMP file.  (This is the default.)

       -os2   Tells  the  program to produce an OS/2 BMP file.	(Before August 2000, this was the
	      default).

       -bpp   This determines how many bits per pixel you want the BMP file to contain.  Only  1,
	      4,  8,  and 24 are possible.  By default, ppmtobmp chooses the smallest number with
	      which it can represent all the colors in the input image.  If you specify a  number
	      too  small  to  represent all the colors in the input image, ppmtobmp tells you and
	      terminates.  You can use ppmquant or ppmdither to reduce the number  of  colors  in
	      the image.

NOTES
       To  get	a faithful reproduction of the input image, the maxval of the input image must be
       255.  If it is something else, ppmtobmp the colors in the BMP file may be slightly differ-
       ent from the colors in the input.

       Windows icons are not BMP files.  Use ppmtowinicon to create those.
