NAME
       pnmtosgi - convert a portable anymap to a SGI image file

SYNOPSIS
       pnmtosgi [-verbatim|-rle] [-imagename Name] [pnmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads  a  portable  anymap as input. Produces an SGI image
       file as output.  The SGI image will  be  2-dimensional  (1
       channel) for PBM and PGM input, and 3-dimensional (3 chan-
       nels) for PPM.

OPTIONS
       -verbatim
              Write an uncompressed file.

       -rle (default)
              Write a compressed (run length encoded) file.

       -imagename name
              Write the string "name" into the imagename field of
              the header.  The name string is limited to 79 char-
              acters.  If no name is given, pnmtosgi  writes  "no
              name" into this field.
