SUN-PIX(1)			    BRL-CAD			    SUN-PIX(1)

NAME
       sun-pix - convert Sun bitmaps from screendump(1)	into pix(5) or bw(5)
       raster image

SYNOPSIS
       sun-pix [-b] [-H] [-i] [-P] [-v]	[-C] [sun.bitmap]

DESCRIPTION
       sun-pix is a program to take Sun	bitmap files created with Sun's
       screendump(1) command, and convert them to a pix(5) format file.	If the
       -b flag is specified, a bw(5) format file is created instead. Note that
       sun-pix will refuse to write to a terminal; its output must be
       redirected unless it's invoked with the -H flag.	The dimensions of the
       input file are the dimensions of	the output file, and use of the	-H
       flag will cause the image size to be printed without further processing
       of the input, or	generation of any other	output;	the image size is
       output as a pair	of command line	options	(i.e., -w1152 -n900) suitable
       for use with other brlcad(1) tools such as pix-fb(1). When the -v flag
       is specified, all the fields of the header are printed on stderr, to
       aid debugging. Note that	the "encoded" format is	not supported.

       Specifying the -i flag will invert the sense of a one-bit wide input
       image, i.e., exchanging black for white.	The default Sun	image is black
       print on	white background; the -i flag will give	a white	image on black
       background, which is often better for purposes of creating overlays to
       be composited with pixmerge(1) on top of	color images.

       The -P flag indicates that the input is a pure bitmap with no Sun-style
       header on it. The first bit to be processed will	be the most
       significant bit (MSB), i.e., the	left-most bit in the byte.

       The -C flag indicates that the color map	is to be output.

       Note that the input file	is expected to be in Sun ("network") byte
       order (i.e., "big-endian", with byte 0 on the left), regardless of the
       byte order of the machine running this program.

BUGS
       24-bit images are not supported yet.
