DESCRIPTION

   TYPES AND CONSTANTS
       Each gray should contain only the values between 0 and  PGM_OVERALLMAXVAL.   pgm_pbmmaxval
       is  the  maxval  used when a PGM program reads a PBM file.  Normally it is 1; however, for
       some programs, a larger value gives better results.

       PGM_OVERALLMAXVAL is the maximum value of a maxval in a PGM file.   PGM_MAXMAXVAL  is  the
       maximum  value  of  a  maxval  in  a PGM file that is compatible with the PGM format as it
       existed before April 2000.  It is also the maximum value of a maxval that results  in  the
       minimum  possible  raster  size for a particular image.  I.e an image with a maxval higher
       than PGM_MAXMAXVAL cannot be read or generated by old PGM processing programs and requires
       more file space.

       PGM_FORMAT  is  the  format  code  for  a Plain PGM format image file.  RPGM_FORMAT is the
       format code for a Raw PGM format image file.  PGM_TYPE is the format type code for the PGM
       formats.   PGM_FORMAT_TYPE  is a macro that generates code to compute the format type code
       of a PBM or PGM format from the format code which is its argument.

   INITIALIZATION
       All PGM programs must call pgm_init() just after invocation,  before  they  process  their
       arguments.

   MEMORY MANAGEMENT
       pgm_allocarray() allocates an array of grays.

       pgm_allocrow() allocates a row of the given number of grays.

       pgm_freearray()  frees  the  array  allocated  with  pgm_allocarray() containing the given
       number of rows.

       pgm_freerow() frees a row of grays allocated with pgm_allocrow().

   READING FILES
       If a function in this section is called on a PBM format file, it translates the  PBM  file
       into  a PGM file on the fly and functions as if it were called on the equivalent PGM file.
       The format value returned by pgm_readpgminit() is, however, not translated.  It represents
       the actual format of the PBM file.

       pgm_readpgminit()  reads  the header of a PGM file, returning all the information from the
       header and leaving the file positioned just after the header.

       pgm_readpgmrow() reads a row of grays into the grayrow array.  format,  cols,  and  maxval
       are the values returned by pgm_readpgminit().

       pgm_readpgm()  reads an entire PGM image into memory, returning the allocated array as its
       return value and returning the information from the header  as  rows,  cols,  and  maxval.
       This function combines pgm_readpgminit(), pgm_allocarray(), and pgm_readpgmrow().

   WRITING FILES
       pgm_writepgminit()  writes  the  header for a PGM file and leaves it positioned just after
       the header.

       forceplain is a logical value that tells pgm_writepgminit() to write a header for a  plain
       PGM format file, as opposed to a raw PGM format file.

       pgm_writepgmrow()  writes  the  row  grayrow to a PGM file.  For meaningful results, cols,
       maxval, and forceplain must be the same as was used with pgm_writepgminit().

       pgm_writepgm() write the header and all data for a  PGM  image.   This  function  combines
       pgm_writepgminit() and pgm_writepgmrow().

   MISCELLANEOUS
       pgm_nextimage()  positions  a PGM input file to the next image in it (so that a subsequent
       pgm_readpgminit() reads its header).

       pgm_nextimage() is analogous to pbm_nextimage(), but works on PGM and PBM files.

       pgm_check() checks for the common file integrity error where the file is the wrong size to
       contain all the image data.

       pgm_check() is analogous to pbm_check(), but works on PGM and PBM files.
