NAME
       pbmtomacp - convert a portable bitmap into a MacPaint file

SYNOPSIS
       pbmtomacp [-l left] [-r right] [-b bottom] [-t top]  [pbm-
       file]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a  portable  bitmap  as input.  If no input-file is
       given, standard input is  assumed.   Produces  a  MacPaint
       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 PNTG file to  MacOS.

OPTIONS
       Left, right, bottom & top let you define a square into the
       pbm file, that must be converted.  Default  is  the  whole
       file.   If  the file is too large for a MacPaint-file, the
       bitmap is cut to fit from ( left, top ).

BUGS
       The source code contains comments in a language other than
       English.
