       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


       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.
