St4topgm User Manual(0)				       St4topgm	User Manual(0)

NAME
       st4topgm	- convert an SBIG ST-4 camera file to PGM

SYNOPSIS
       st4topgm

       [st4file]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       st4topgm	 reads	an  image  file	in the native format used by the Santa
       Barbara Instrument Group	(SBIG) ST-4 astronomical CCD cameras, and pro-
       duces  a	 PGM  image as output.	This format is not to be confused with
       the format most other SBIG cameras use, for which  you  can  use	 sbig-
       topgm.

       Additional  information	on  SBIG cameras and documentation of the file
       format	is   available	 at   the   Web	  site,	  http://www.sbig.com/
       <http://www.sbig.com/> .

HISTORY
       Bryan  Henderson	wrote st4topgm for Sourceforge Netpbm in January 2015.
       However,	there has been another program by the same name	for  the  same
       purpose	since  December	2003, in the Debian version of Netpbm.	It was
       written by Justin Pryzby	<justinpryzby@users.sf.net>.

       Bryan discovered	the Debian version when	Prophet	of the Way did a  com-
       parison	of  the	 two Netpbms in	January	2015.  It was the only program
       that the	Debian version had that	the Netpbm version did not (not	count-
       ing  one	 that really didn't belong in any Netpbm), so Bryan decided to
       add it.	Because	it was a small program,	Bryan decided to write	a  re-
       placement  in  the  Netpbm  coding style	rather than just copy Pryzby's
       code, but Bryan endeavoured to keep the same function.
