NAME

       xpmtoppm - convert an X11 pixmap into a portable pixmap

SYNOPSIS

       xpmtoppm [--alphaout={alpha-filename,-}] [-verbose] [xpmfile]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads an X11 pixmap (XPM version 1 or 3) as input.  Produces a PPM file as output.

OPTIONS

       --alphaout=alpha-filename
              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.

       --verbose
              xpmtoppm prints information about its processing on Standard Error.

LIMITATIONS

       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.
