ppmtotga(1)                                           ppmtotga(1)

NAME
       ppmtotga - convert portable pixmap into a TrueVision Targa
       file

SYNOPSIS
       ppmtotga [-mono|-cmap|-rgb] [-norle] [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION
       Reads a portable pixmap as input.  Produces  a  TrueVision
       Targa file as output.

OPTIONS
       -mono  Forces  Targa  file to be of type 8 bit monochrome.
              Input must be  a  portable  bitmap  or  a  portable
              graymap.

       -cmap  Forces Targa file to be of type 24 bit colormapped.
              Input must be a portable bitmap, a portable graymap
              or  a  portable  pixmap containing no more than 256
              distinct colors.

       -rgb   Forces Targa file to be of  type  24  bit  unmapped
              color.

       -norle Disables  run-length  encoding,  in case you have a
              Targa reader which can't  read  run-length  encoded
              files.

       All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique pre-
       fix.  If no file type is specified the  most  highly  con-
       stained  compatible type is used, where monochrome is more
       constained than colormapped which is  in  turn  more  con-
       stained than unmapped.

BUGS
       Does  not  support  all possible Targa file types.  Should
       really be in PNM, not PPM.
