       xpmtoppm - convert an X11 pixmap into a portable pixmap


       xpmtoppm [--alphaout={alpha-filename,-}] [-verbose] [xpmfile]


       Reads an X11 pixmap (XPM version 1 or 3) as input.  Produces a PPM file as output.


              xpmtoppm creates a PBM file containing the transparency mask for the image.  If the
              input image doesn't  contain  transparency  information,  the  alpha-filename  file
              contains  all  white  (opaque)  alpha  values.   If  you  don't specify --alphaout,
              xpmtoppm does not generate an alpha file, and if the input image  has  transparency
              information, xpmtoppm simply discards it.

              If  you  specify  -  as  the filename, xpmtoppm writes the alpha output to Standard
              Output and discards the image.

              See pnmcomp(1) for one way to use the alpha output file.

              xpmtoppm prints information about its processing on Standard Error.


       The support to XPM version 3 is limited. Comments can only be single lines and there  must
       be for every pixel a default colorname for a color type visual.
