NAME
       macptopbm - convert a MacPaint file into	a PBM image

SYNOPSIS
       macptopbm [-extraskip N]	[macpfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       macptopbmreads  a  MacPaint  file  as input and produces	a PBM image as
       output.

OPTIONS
       You can abbreviate any option to	its shortest unique prefix.

       -extraskip
	      This option is to	get around a  problem  with  some  methods  of
	      transferring  files  from	the Mac	world to the Unix world.  Most
	      of these methods leave the Mac files alone, but a	 few  of  them
	      add the "finderinfo" data	onto the front of the Unix file.  This
	      means an extra 128 bytes to skip over  when  reading  the	 file.
	      The  symptom  to	watch for is that the resulting	PBM file looks
	      shifted to one side.  If you get this, try -extraskip  128,  and
	      if that still doesn't look right try another value.
