NAME

       pcxtoppm - convert a PCX file into a portable pixmap

SYNOPSIS

       pcxtoppm [-stdpalette] [-verbose] [pcxfile]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads  a  PCX  file  as  input.   Produces a portable pixmap as output.
       Supported PCX types are:

       Colormapped files with 2-16 colors.
              "Packed pixel" format  (1,  2  or  4  bits/pixel,  1  plane)  or
              bitplane  format  (1 bit/pixel, 1-4 planes).  The program checks
              the colormap and uses an internal one if the  provided  colormap
              is completely black.

       Colormapped files with 256 colors
              8 bits/pixel, 1 plane, colormap at the end of the file.

       24bit truecolor files
              24bit RGB: 8 bits/pixel, 3 planes.

       32bit truecolor files
              24bit RGB + 8bit intensity: 8 bits/pixel, 4 planes.

OPTIONS

       -stdpalette
              Enforce  the  use  of  the  internal  colormap for files with 16
              colors or less.
