NAME
pamdice - slice a Netpbm image into many horizontally and/or vertically SYNOPSIS
pamslice -outstem=filenamestem [-width=width] [-height=height] [-verbose] [filename] You can use the minimum unique abbreviation of the options. You can use two hyphens instead of one. You can separate an option name from its value with white space instead of an equals sign. DESCRIPTION
Reads a PAM, PBM, PGM, or PPM image as input. Splits it horizontally and/or vertically into equal size pieces and writes them into sepa- rate files as the same kind of image. See the -outstem option for information on naming of the output files. The -width and -height options determine the size of the output pieces. pnmcat can rejoin the images. OPTIONS
-outstem=filenamestem This option determines the names of the output files. Each output file is named filenamestem_y_x.type where filenamestem is the value of the -outstem option, x and y are the horizontal and vertical locations, respectively, in the input image of the output image, zero being the leftmost and top, and type is .pbm, .pgm, .ppm, or .pam, depending on the type of image. -width=width gives the width in pixels of the output images. The rightmost pieces are smaller than this if the input image is not a multiple of width pixels wide. -height=height gives the height in pixels of the output images. The bottom pieces are smaller than this if the input image is not a multiple of height pixels high. -verbose Print information about the processing to Standard Error. SEE ALSO

NAME
pamcut - cut a rectangle out of a PAM, PBM, PGM, or PPM image SYNOPSIS
pamcut [-left leftcol] [-right rightcol] [-top toprow] [-bottom bottomrow] [-width width] [-height height] [-pad] [-verbose] [ left right width height ] [pnmfile] All options may be abbreviated to the shortest unique prefix. DESCRIPTION
Reads a PAM, PBM, PGM, or PPM image as input. Extracts the specified rectangle, and produces the same kind of image as output. There are two ways to specify the rectangle to cut: arguments and options. Options are easier to remember and read, more expressive, and allow you to use defaults. Arguments were the only way available before July 2000. If you use both options and arguments, the two specifications get mixed in an unspecified way. To use options, just code any mixture of the -left, -right, -top, -bottom, -width, and -height options. What you don't specify defaults. It is an error to overspecify, i.e. to specify all three of -left, -right, and -width or -top, -bottom, and -height. To use arguments, specify all four of the left, right, width, and height arguments. left and top have the same effect as specifying them as the argument of a -left or -top option, respectively. width and height have the same effect as specifying them as the argument of a -width or -height option, respectively, where they are positive. Where they are not positive, they have the same effect as specifying one less than the value as the argument to a -right or -bottom option, respectively. (E.g. width = 0 makes the cut go all the way to the right edge). Before July 2000, negative numbers were not allowed for width and height. Input is from Standard Input if you don't specify the input file pnmfile. Output is to Standard Output. If you are splitting a single image into multiple same-size images, pamdice is faster than running pamcut multiple times. OPTIONS
-left The column number of the leftmost column to be in the output. If a nonnegative number, it refers to columns numbered from 0 at the left, increasing to the right. If negative, it refers to columns numbered -1 at the right, decreasing to the left. -right The column number of the rightmost column to be in the output, numbered the same as for -left. -top The row number of the topmost row to be in the output. If a nonnegative number it refers to rows numbered from 0 at the top, increasing downward. If negative, it refers to columns numbered -1 at the bottom, decreasing upward. -bottom The row number of the bottom-most row to be in the output, numbered the same as for -top. -width The number of columns to be in the output. Must be positive. -height The number of rows to be in the output. Must be positive. -pad If the rectangle you specify is not entirely within the input image, pamcut fails unless you also specify -pad. In that case, it pads the output with black up to the edges you specify. You can use this option if you need to have an image of certain dimensions and have an image of arbitrary dimensions. pnmpad also adds borders to an image, but you specify their width directly. -verbose Print information about the processing to Standard Error.
