NAME

       ilbmtoppm - convert an ILBM file into a portable pixmap

SYNOPSIS

       ilbmtoppm [-verbose] [-ignore<chunkID>] [-isham|-isehb] [-adjustcolors]
       [ILBMfile]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads an IFF ILBM file as input.  Produces a portable pixmap as output.
       Supported ILBM types are:

       Normal ILBMs with 1-16 planes.

       Amiga Extra_Halfbrite (EHB)

       Amiga HAM with 3-16 planes.

       24 bit.

       Multiplatte (normal or HAM) pictures.

       Color map (BMHD + CMAP chunk only, nPlanes = 0).

       Unofficial direct color.
              1-16 planes for each color component.

       Chunks used:
              BMHD,  CMAP,  CAMG  (only  HAM  &  EHB  flags  used), PCHG, BODY
              unofficial DCOL chunk to identify direct color ILBM

       Chunks ignored:
              GRAB, DEST, SPRT, CRNG, CCRT, CLUT, DPPV, DRNG, EPSF

       Other chunks (ignored but displayed in verbose mode):
              NAME, AUTH, (c), ANNO, DPI

       Unknown chunks are skipped.

OPTIONS

       -verbose
              Give some information about the ILBM file.

       -ignore <chunkID>
              Skip a chunk.  <chunkID> is the 4-letter IFF chunk identifier of
              the chunk to be skipped.

       -isham | -isehb
              Treat  the  input file as a HAM or Extra_Halfbrite picture, even
              if these flags or not set in the CAMG chunk (or if there  is  no
              CAMG chunk).

       -adjustcolors
              If  all  colors  in  the  CMAP  have  a  value  of less then 16,
              ilbmtoppm assumes a 4-bit colormap and gives  a  warning.   With
              this option the colormap is scaled to 8 bits.

BUGS

       The  multipalette PCHG BigLineChanges and Huffman decompression code is
       untested.
