       pgmtoimgv - Portable Graymap to Pilot Image Viewer converter, version 2.0.


       pgmtoimgv [-h] [-v] [-4] [-t title] [-n notefile] [-{c|m|u}] [in [out]]


       pgmtoimgv  is  a  simple  filter for converting Portable Graymaps to grayscale Pilot Image
       Viewer pdb files.  The input pgm file must use the following palette  unless  you  specify
       the -4 switch:
            4 1
              0   0   0
             85  85  85
            170 170 170
            255 255 255
       if you specify -4, then your grayscale image must use this palette:
            16 1
              0   0   0
             17  17  17
             34  34  34
             51  51  51
             68  68  68
             85  85  85
            102 102 102
            119 119 119
            136 136 136
            153 153 153
            170 170 170
            187 187 187
            204 204 204
            221 221 221
            238 238 238
            255 255 255
       If  your  PGM  file  doesn't  use  one  of these palettes, use ppmquant(1) to convert your

       If an image's width is not a multiple of 16 pixels, enough  extra  white  pixels  will  be
       added at the right side to ensure alignment.  Images will be padded, with white pixels, to
       a width and height of 160 if needed.


       -h     Display a short summary of the command line options and exit.

       -v     Display the version and exit.

       -n notefile
              Specify the note file.  No note is attached to the image by default.

       -c     Produce a compressed image.

       -m     Produce a compressed image if it is smaller than the uncompressed version.  This is
              the default compression mode.

       -u     Produce an uncompressed image.

       in     The input file.  The default is the standard input.
