sbigtopgm — convert an SBIG CCDOPS file to PGM

Synopsis

sbigtopgm

[sbigfile]

Description

This program is part of Netpbm(1).

sbigtopgm reads an image file in the native format used by the Santa Barbara Instrument Group (SBIG) astronomical CCD cameras, and produces a PGM image as output.  Additional information on SBIG cameras and documentation of the file format is available at the Web site, http://www.sbig.com/ .

sbigtopgm recognizes some variation on the documented SBIG Type 3 format.  It allows any capitalization in the header.  It ignores all whitespace in the header except newlines.  So a header line can end in newline, CRLF, or the bizarre LF-CR actually required by the spec.
