NAME
       pcxtoppm - convert a PCX file into a portable pixmap

SYNOPSIS
       pcxtoppm [-stdpalette] [pcxfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a PCX file as input.  Produces a portable pixmap as
       output.  Supported PCX types are:

       Colormapped files with 2-16 colors.
              "Packed pixel" format (1,  2  or  4  bits/pixel,  1
              plane)   or   bitplane  format  (1  bit/pixel,  1-4
              planes).  The program checks the colormap and  uses
              an  internal  one  if the provided colormap is com-
              pletely black.

       Colormapped files with 256 colors
              8 bits/pixel, 1 plane, colormap at the end  of  the
              file.

       24bit truecolor files
              24bit RGB: 8 bits/pixel, 3 planes.

       32bit truecolor files
              24bit RGB + 8bit intensity: 8 bits/pixel, 4 planes.

OPTIONS
       -stdpalette
              Enforce the use of the internal colormap for  files
              with 16 colors or less.
