NAME

       pamdice - slice a Netpbm image into many horizontally and/or vertically

SYNOPSIS

       pamslice    -outstem=filenamestem    [-width=width]    [-height=height]
       [-verbose] [filename]

       You can use the minimum unique abbreviation of the  options.   You  can
       use  two  hyphens instead of one.  You can separate an option name from
       its value with white space instead of an equals sign.

DESCRIPTION

       Reads a PAM, PBM, PGM, or PPM image as input.  Splits  it  horizontally
       and/or  vertically into equal size pieces and writes them into separate
       files as the same kind of image.

       See the -outstem option for information on naming of the output files.

       The -width and -height options determine the size of the output pieces.

       pnmcat can rejoin the images.

OPTIONS

       -outstem=filenamestem
              This option determines the names  of  the  output  files.   Each
              output file is named filenamestem_y_x.type where filenamestem is
              the value of the -outstem option, x and y are the horizontal and
              vertical  locations,  respectively,  in  the  input image of the
              output image, zero being the leftmost and top, and type is .pbm,
              .pgm, .ppm, or .pam, depending on the type of image.

       -width=width
              gives  the  width in pixels of the output images.  The rightmost
              pieces are smaller than  this  if  the  input  image  is  not  a
              multiple of width pixels wide.

       -height=height
              gives  the  height  in  pixels of the output images.  The bottom
              pieces are smaller than  this  if  the  input  image  is  not  a
              multiple of height pixels high.

       -verbose
              Print information about the processing to Standard Error.
