NAME

       plaintov - convert image from Vista plain file format to Vista data file

SYNOPSIS

       plaintov [-option ...] [infile] [outfile]

DESCRIPTION

       plaintov reads an image in Vista plain file format and writes is as a Vista data file.

       Plain  file  format,  defined  in Vplain(5Vi), allows a small image to be created entirely
       using a text editor because it represents pixel values in ASCII. In  a  Vista  data  file,
       those pixel values are encoded in binary.

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

       plaintov accepts the following options:

       -help          Prints a message describing options.

       -in infile     Specifies the input file, which is in Vista plain file format.

       -out outfile   Specifies the output file, which will be a Vista data file.

       -name name     Specifies the name to be given the converted image. Default: ``image''.

       Input  and  output files can be specified on the command line or allowed to default to the
       standard input and output streams.
