NAME

       ppmtotga - convert portable pixmap into a TrueVision Targa file

SYNOPSIS

       ppmtotga [-mono|-cmap|-rgb] [-norle] [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads a portable pixmap as input.  Produces a TrueVision Targa file as output.

OPTIONS

       -mono  Forces  Targa file to be of type 8 bit monochrome.  Input must be a portable bitmap
              or a portable graymap.

       -cmap  Forces Targa file to be of type 24 bit  colormapped.   Input  must  be  a  portable
              bitmap,  a  portable  graymap  or  a  portable  pixmap  containing no more than 256
              distinct colors.

       -rgb   Forces Targa file to be of type 24 bit unmapped color.

       -norle Disables run-length encoding, in case you have a Targa reader which can't read run-
              length encoded files.

       All  flags  can  be  abbreviated  to  their  shortest  unique  prefix.  If no file type is
       specified the most highly constained compatible type is used,  where  monochrome  is  more
       constained than colormapped which is in turn more constained than unmapped.

BUGS

       Does not support all possible Targa file types.  Should really be in PNM, not PPM.
