NAME
       anytopnm  -  attempt  to  convert an unknown type of image
       file to a portable anymap

SYNOPSIS
       anytopnm file

DESCRIPTION
       Uses the file program, possibly  augmented  by  the  magic
       numbers  file  included with PBMPLUS, to try to figure out
       what type of image file it is.  If that  fails  (very  few
       image  formats  have magic numbers), looks at the filename
       extension.  If that fails, punts.

       The type of the output file depends on the input file.

SEE ALSO
       pnmfile(1), pnm(5), file(1)

BUGS
       It's a script.  Scripts are not portable to non-Unix envi-
       ronments.
