NAME

       pnmsplit  -  split  a multi-image portable anymap into multiple single-
       image files

SYNOPSIS

       pnmsplit [pnmfile[ output_file_pattern]]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads a Netpbm file as input.  Copies each image in the  input  into  a
       separate file, in the same format.

       pnmfile  is  the file specification of the input file, or - to indicate
       Standard Input.  The default is Standard Input.

       output_file_pattern tells how to name the output files.  It is the file
       specification  of  the  output file, except that the first occurence of
       "%d" in it is replaced by the image sequence number in  unpadded  ASCII
       decimal,  with  the sequence starting at 0.  If there is no "%d" in the
       pattern, pnmsplit fails.

       The default output file pattern is "image%d".

       Note that to do the reverse operation (combining multiple  single-image
       PNM  files into a multi-image one), there is no special Netpbm program.
       Just use cat.
