NAME
       ppmtopict - convert a PPM image to a Macintosh PICT file

SYNOPSIS
       ppmtopict

       [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       ppmtopict reads a PPM image as input and	produces a Macintosh PICT file
       as output.

       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 PICT  file
       to MacOS.

       Even though PICT	can have 2 and 4 bits per pixel, ppmtopict always gen-
       erates an 8 bits	per pixel file.

LIMITATIONS
       The picture size	field is correct only if the output is to a file since
       writing	into this field	requires seeking backwards on a	file.  However
       the PICT	documentation seems to suggest that this field is not critical
       anyway since it is only the lower 16 bits of the	picture	size.
