NAME
       pamtouil - convert a PNM or PNM/alpha image into a Motif UIL icon file


SYNOPSIS
       pamtouil [-name=uilname] [pamfile]

       You may abbreviate any option to its shortest unique prefix.  You may use two hyphens instead of one to delimit
       an option.  You may separate an option from its value with whitespace instead of =.


DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pamtouil reads a PNM or PAM image as input and produces a Motif UIL icon file as output.  If the input is  PAM,
       it may be either a regular grayscale or color image or grayscale+alpha or color+alpha.  Where the alpha channel
       is present, pamtouil renders pixels that are more than half transparent as transparent in the output.

       In the UIL's colormap, pamtouil uses the color names from the RGB database -- the  same  one  ppmmake(1)  uses.
       Where  a  color  in the input does not exactly match one of the colors named in the RGB database, pamtouil uses
       the closest color named in the RGB database.


OPTIONS
       -name       Allows you to specify the prefix string which is printed in the
                   resulting UIL output.  If not specified, will default to the filename
                   (without extension) of the ppmfile argument.  If -name is not
                   specified and no ppmfile is specified (i.e. piped input), the
                   prefix string will default to the string 'noname'.

HISTORY
       Before May 2002, pamtouil was called ppmtouil and had no way to specify transparency.
