pamtoavs - Man Page

convert a Netpbm image to an AVS X image


pamtoavs [netpbmfile]


This program is part of Netpbm(1).

pamtoavs reads a Netpbm image as input and produces a Stardent AVS X image as output. AVS X images are one of the few image formats Gnuplot  v4.2 and later can use.

netpbmfile is the input file, which defaults to Standard Input. Output is always on Standard Output.

Try the following:

    gnuplot> plot 'myimage.avs' binary filetype=avs with rgbimage

See the Gnuplot manual" (1) for more information.


There are no command line options defined specifically for pamtoavs, but it recognizes the options common to all programs based on libnetpbm (See Common Options .)
