NAME
       pamtopam - copy PAM image


SYNOPSIS
       pamtopam


DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pamtopam simply copies a PAM image from Standard Input to Standard Output.  This may seem an unnecessary dupli-
       cation of cat, but remember that a PAM program can read a PBM, PGM, or PPM image as if it were  PAM.   So  pam-
       topam can read either a PBM, PGM, PPM, or PAM image and produce a PAM image as output.

       Even  that  is  of  limited  usefulness because of the fact that almost any program to which you would feed the
       resulting PAM image could also just take the original image directly.  However, sometimes  you  really  want  a
       true PAM image.

       You can do a more general job of translating PAM/PNM to PAM with pamchannel.
