ppmtopict - convert a portable pixmap into a Macintosh PICT file SYNOPSIS
ppmtopict [ppmfile] DESCRIPTION
Reads a portable pixmap as input. Produces a Macintosh PICT file as output. The generated file is only the data fork of a picture. You will need a program such as mcvert to generate a Macbinary or a BinHex file that contains the necessary information to identify the file as a PICT file to MacOS. Even though PICT supports 2 and 4 bits per pixel, ppmtopict always generates an 8 bits per pixel file. BUGS
The picture size field is only correct if the output is to a file since writing into this field requires seeking backwards on a file. How- ever the PICT documentation seems to suggest that this field is not critical anyway since it is only the lower 16 bits of the picture size. SEE ALSO

I'm writing a command shell, and I want to be able to detect when the user presses an arrow key (otherwise it just prints [[A, [[B, etc.).
