Pgmtopgm User Manual(0)				       Pgmtopgm	User Manual(0)

NAME
       pgmtopgm	- copy PGM image

SYNOPSIS
       pgmtopgm

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pgmtopgm	simply copies a	PGM image from Standard	Input to Standard Out-
       put.  This may seem an unnecessary duplication  of  cat,	 but  remember
       that a PGM program can read a PBM image as if it	were PGM.  So pgmtopgm
       can read	either a PBM or	PGM image and produce a	PGM image as output.

       Even that is of limited usefulness because of the fact that almost  any
       program to which	you would feed the resulting PGM image could also just
       take the	original image directly.  However, sometimes you really	need a
       true PGM	image.

       When  you know you have a PBM image and want a PGM image, pbmtopgm is a
       more general way	to do that conversion.
