ppmtopcx - convert a portable pixmap into a PCX file
ppmtopcx [-24bit] [-packed] [ppmfile]
Reads a portable pixmap as input. Produces a PCX file as output. The type of the PCX file depends on the number of colors in the pixmap: 16 colors or less: 1 bit/pixel, 1-4 planes. 256 colors or less: 8 bits/pixel, 1 plane, colormap at the end of the file. More than 256 colors: 24bit truecolor file (8 bits/pixel, 3 planes).
-24bit Produce a 24bit truecolor file, even if the pixmap has 256 colors or less. -packed Use "packed pixel" format for files with 16 colors or less: 1, 2, or 4 bits/pixel, 1 plane.
