NAME
       ppmtoppm	- copy PPM image

SYNOPSIS
       ppmtoppm

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

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

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

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