pnmtorast — convert a PPM into a Sun rasterfile

Synopsis

pnmtorast [-standard|-rle] [pnmfile]

Description

This program is part of Netpbm(1).

pnmtorastreads a PPM image as input and produces a Sun rasterfile as output.

Color values in Sun rasterfiles are eight bits wide, so pnmtorast will automatically scale colors to have a maxval of 255.  An extra pamdepth step is not necessary.

Options

The -standard option forces the result to be in RT_STANDARD form; the -rle option, RT_BYTE_ENCODED, which is smaller but, well, less standard.  The default is -rle.

All options can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.
