convert a Netpbm image to DjVu Color RLE format



[-transparent color] [netpbmfile [rlefile]]

Minimum unique abbreviation of options in acceptable.


This program is part of Netpbm(1).

pamtodjvurle reads a Netpbm image (PNM or PAM equivalent of PNM) as input and produces DjVu Color RLE format as output.


In addition to the options common to all programs based on libnetpbm (most notably -quiet, see Common Options ), pamtodjvurle recognizes the following command line option:

-transparent colorname

This option indicates which color in the image should be considered transparent.

Specify the color (color) as described for the argument of the pnm_parsecolor() library routine .

Default is "white".

pamtodjvurle was new in Netpbm 10.22 (April 2004) but a program that did almost the same thing, called ppmtodjvurle, was in Netpbm 10.21 (March 2004).  The latter was written and contributed to Netpbm by Scott Pakin <>. pamtodjvurle uses techniques taken from ppmtodjvurle, but no code is copied between them.
