NAME
       palmtopnm - convert a Palm Bitmap to a PNM image

SYNOPSIS
       palmtopnm

       [-verbose]

       [-rendition N]

       [-showhist] [palmfile] palmtopnm

       -transparent

       [-verbose]

       [palmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       palmtopnm reads a Palm Bitmap as	input, from Standard Input or palmfile
       and produces a PPM image	as output.

       Alternatively (when you specify	-transparent),	palmtopnm  writes  the
       value of	the transparent	color in the Palm Bitmap to Standard Output.

       Palmtopnm  can  convert Palm Bitmaps with the following features.  This
       does not	mean that it doesn't handle other features.   These  are  just
       the ones	we found worth mentioning.

       o      Version 0

       o      Version 1

       o      Version 2

       o      Version 3	(new in	Netpbm 10.27 (March 2005))

       o      Scanline compression

       o      RLE compression

       o      Packbits compression (new	in Netpbm 10.27	(March 2005))

OPTIONS
       -verbose
	      Display various interesting information about the	input file and
	      process.

       -transparent
	      If the Palm Bitmap has a transparent color set, palmtopnm	writes
	      the value	for that color to Standard Output in the form #RRGGBB,
	      where RR,	GG, and	BB are two-digit hexadecimal numbers  indicat-
	      ing a value in the range 0 through 255.  If no transparent color
	      is set in	the Bitmap, palmtopnm writes nothing.  palmtopnm  does
	      not generate any output image when you specify -transparent.

       -rendition N
	      Palm  Bitmaps  may  contain  several different renditions	of the
	      same image, with different depths.  By default, palmtopnm	 oper-
	      ates  on	the first rendition (rendition number 1) in the	image.
	      This switch allows you to	operate	on a different rendition.  The
	      value  must be between 1 and the number of renditions in the im-
	      age, inclusive.

       -showhist
	      This option causes palmtopnm to write a histogram	of  colors  in
	      the input	file to	Standard Error.

LIMITATIONS
       You cannot generate a transparency mask if the Palm Bitmap has a	trans-
       parent color.  However, you can still do	this with ppmcolormask with  a
       Netpbm pipe similar to:

       palmtopnm  bitmap.palm  |  ppmcolormask	`palmtopnm  -transparent  bit-
       map.palm`

HISTORY
       Before Netpbm 10.23 (July 2004),	there was a -forceplain	 option.   But
       that had	been redundant for a long time,	since the Netpbm common	option
       -plain does the same thing.

AUTHORS
       This program was	originally written as Tbmptopnm.c,  by	Ian  Goldberg.
       It  was heavily modified	by Bill	Janssen	to add color, compression, and
       transparency function.
