ppmtotga - convert portable pixmap into a TrueVision Targa file
ppmtotga [-mono|-cmap|-rgb] [-norle] [ppmfile]
Reads a portable pixmap as input. Produces a TrueVision Targa file as output.
-mono Forces Targa file to be of type 8 bit monochrome. Input must be a portable bitmap
or a portable graymap.
-cmap Forces Targa file to be of type 24 bit colormapped. Input must be a portable bit-
map, a portable graymap or a portable pixmap containing no more than 256 distinct
-rgb Forces Targa file to be of type 24 bit unmapped color.
-norle Disables run-length encoding, in case you have a Targa reader which can't read run-
length encoded files.
All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix. If no file type is speci-
fied the most highly constained compatible type is used, where monochrome is more con-
stained than colormapped which is in turn more constained than unmapped.
Does not support all possible Targa file types. Should really be in PNM, not PPM.
