NAME
       winicontoppm - convert a Windows .ico file into 1 or more portable pixmap files

SYNOPSIS
       winicontoppm   [-writeands]   [-allicons|-bestqual]   [-multippm]   [-verbose]  [iconfile]
       [ppmdestfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads a Microsoft Windows .ico file, converts it to one or more ppms.

       A Windows icon contains 1 or more images, at different resolutions and color depths.  Each
       image has an 'and' mask, which contains transparancy data.

       By  default,  the output goes to Standard Output.  If you specify ppmdestfile, output goes
       into one or more files named as follows.  If it's just one  file  (i.e.	you  specify  the
       -multippm  option  or don't specify -allicons), the file specification is ppmdestfile.ppm.
       If  it's  multiple  files,  their  file	specifications	are  ppmdestfile_1.ppm,  ppmdest-
       file_2.ppm, etc.

       When  you  specify  the -writeands option, the filenames above are modified to include the
       string xor as in ppmdestfile_xor.ppm or ppmdestfile_xor_1.ppm.

OPTIONS
       -writeands
	      For each icon written, also write the 'and' (transparancy) mask as a  seperate  PBM
	      file.  It's name is of the form ppmdestfile_and.pbm or ppmdestfile_and_1.pbm.

       -allicons
	      Extract all images from the .ico file.

       -bestqual
	      Extract only the best quality (largest, then highest bpp) image from the .ico file.

       -multippm
	      Write all ppms to a single file.
