RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for xpmtoppm (redhat section 1)

xpmtoppm(1)			     General Commands Manual			      xpmtoppm(1)

NAME
       xpmtoppm - convert an X11 pixmap into a PPM image

SYNOPSIS
       xpmtoppm [--alphaout={alpha-filename,-}] [-verbose] [xpmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads an X11 pixmap (XPM version 1 or 3) as input.  Produces a PPM file as output.

OPTIONS
       --alphaout=alpha-filename
	      xpmtoppm creates a PBM file containing the transparency mask for the image.  If the
	      input image doesn't contain transparency information, the alpha-filename file  con-
	      tains  all  white (opaque) alpha values.	If you don't specify --alphaout, xpmtoppm
	      does not generate an alpha file, and if the input image has  transparency  informa-
	      tion, xpmtoppm simply discards it.

	      If you specify - as the filename, xpmtoppm writes the alpha output to Standard Out-
	      put and discards the image.

	      See pnmcomp(1) for one way to use the alpha output file.

       --verbose
	      xpmtoppm prints information about its processing on Standard Error.

LIMITATIONS
       The support to XPM version 3 is limited. Comments can only be single lines and there  must
       be for every pixel a default colorname for a color type visual.
