RLETOPAINT(1)		    General Commands Manual		 RLETOPAINT(1)

NAME
       rletopaint - convert an RLE file	to MacPaint format using dithering

SYNOPSIS
       rletopaint [ -l ] [ -r ]	[ -g [ gamma ] ] [ -o outfile.paint ] [	infile
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       Rletopaint converts a file from RLE(5) format to	MacPaint format.   The
       program	uses  dithering	to convert from	a full 24 bit color image to a
       bitmapped image.	 If the	RLE file  is  larger  than  a  MacPaint	 image
       (576x720) it is cropped to fit.

       Because	MacPaint  files	have their coordinate origin in	the upper left
       instead of the lower  left,  the	 RLE  file  should  be	piped  through
       rleflip(1) -v before rletopaint.

       The resulting file can be downloaded to a Macintosh in binary mode, and
       should be given a type of PNTG and a creator of MPNT,  so  it  will  be
       recognized as a MacPaint	file.

OPTIONS
       -l     Use  a  linear  map  in the conversion from 24 bits to bitmapped
	      output.

       -g [ gamma ]
	      Use a gamma map of gamma (gamma is 2.0 if	not specified).

       -r     Invert the sense of the output pixels (white on black instead of
	      black  on	 white).   For	normal	images,	you probably want this
	      flag.

SEE ALSO
       painttorle(1), urt(1), RLE(5).
