NAME
       pbmtomacp - convert a PBM image to a MacPaint file

SYNOPSIS
       pbmtomacp [-left	left]

       [-right right]

       [-top top]

       [-bottom	bottom]

       [pbmfile]

       All  options  can  be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.  You
       may use two hyphens instead of one to designate an option.  You may use
       either  white  space  or	 equals	 signs	between	an option name and its
       value.

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pbmtomacp reads a PBM image as input and	produces a  MacPaint  file  as
       output.

       If you do not specify pbmfile, pbmtomacp	uses Standard Input.

	The  generated file is only the	data fork of a picture.	 You will need
       a program such as mcvert	to generate a Macbinary	or a BinHex file  that
       contains	 the necessary information to identify the file	as a PNTG file
       to MacOS.

OPTIONS
       -norle This option tells	pbmtomacp not to use any run  length  encoding
	      compression  in  the  MacPaint  image it produces.  This output,
	      while not	normal,	conforms to MacPaint specifications and	can be
	      read by any MacPaint decoder without any special settings.

	      The  only	 value	of this	option is testing and experimentation.
	      The option causes	every output image to  contain	exactly	 53072
	      bytes,  which is the theoretical maximum size for	a MacPaint im-
	      age.

	      Without -norle, MacPaint compresses the image as much as	possi-
	      ble and the output size depends on the nature of the input.

       -left  -right  -top  -bottom  These  options let	you define a rectangle
	      within the image to convert.  The	default	is the whole file.  If
	      the  specified image is too large	for a MacPaint-file, pbmtomacp
	      cuts the image to	fit, starting at the specified top  left  cor-
	      ner.

	      These  options exist for backward	compatibility with an unfortu-
	      nate original design.  They do the same thing that you can do in
	      a	more Netpbm-like way and more flexibly by processing the input
	      through pamcut.

HISTORY
       pbmtomacp was added to Netpbm in	1988, written by Douwe van der	Schaaf
       (...!mcvax!uvapsy!vdschaaf).

       In  2015, Akira Urushibata ("Douso") replaced the program with the cur-
       rent version, using different logic and none of the original code.  The
       new  version used the "packed PBM" facilities of	the Netpbm library and
       the shhopt method of command line parsing.
