RLETOPPM(1)		    General Commands Manual		   RLETOPPM(1)

NAME
       rletoppm	- convert a Utah RLE image file	into a PBMPLUS/ppm image file.

SYNOPSIS
       rletoppm	[ -h ] [ -v ] [	-p ] [ infile ]

DESCRIPTION
       This  program  converts Utah RLE(5) image files into PBMPLUS full-color
       (ppm) image files.  Rletoppm will  handle  four	types  of  RLE	files:
       Grayscale  (8  bit  data, no color map),	Pseudocolor (8 bit data	with a
       color map), Truecolor (24 bit data with color map), and Directcolor (24
       bit  data, no color map).  Since	the orgins for the RLE and PBMPLUS im-
       age file	formats	are in different locations, this program automatically
       "flips" the image when converting.

OPTIONS
       -v     This  option  will  cause	 rletoppm  to operate in verbose mode.
	      Header information is printed to "stderr".

       -h     This option allows the header of the RLE file to	be  dumped  to
	      "stderr" without converting the file.  It	is equivalent to using
	      the -v option except that	no file	conversion takes place.

       -p     This option will output the ppm data in the "plain" format (P3),
	      instead of the default "raw bits"	format (P6).  The plain	format
	      is more readable,	but takes up more space.

       infile The input	will be	read from this file.  If infile	is "-"	or  is
	      not  specified,  the  input will be read from the	standard input
	      stream.  The resulting PBMPLUS/ppm data will be  sent  to	 "std-
	      out".

EXAMPLES
       rletoppm	-v lenna.rle >lenna.ppm
	      While  running in	verbose	mode, convert lenna.rle	to PBMPLUS/ppm
	      format and store resulting data in lenna.ppm.

       rletoppm	-h test.rle
	      Dump the header information of the RLE file called test.rle.

       rletoppm	-p test.rle >lenna.ppm
	      Convert lenna.rle	to PBMPLUS/ppm plain (P3) format and store  in
	      lenna.ppm.
