       ppmtopict - convert a portable pixmap into a Macintosh PICT file


       ppmtopict [ppmfile]


       Reads a portable pixmap as input.  Produces a Macintosh PICT file as output.

       The  generated  file  is only the data fork of a picture.  You will need a program such as
       mcvert to generate a Macbinary or a BinHex file that contains the necessary information to
       identify the file as a PICT file to MacOS.

       Even though PICT supports 2 and 4 bits per pixel, ppmtopict always generates an 8 bits per
       pixel file.


       The picture size field is only correct if the output is to a file since writing into  this
       field  requires  seeking  backwards  on  a  file.  However the PICT documentation seems to
       suggest that this field is not critical anyway since it is only the lower 16 bits  of  the
       picture size.
