NAME
       ppmpat - make a pretty PPM image


SYNOPSIS
       ppmpat {-gingham2|-g2} | {-gingham3|-g3} | -madras | -tartan | -poles | -squig | -camo | -anticamo width height

       You can abbreviate any option to its shortest unique prefix.


DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       ppmpat produces a PPM of the specified width and height, with a pattern in it.

       This program is mainly to demonstrate use of the ppmdraw routines, a simple but powerful drawing library.   See
       the  ppmdraw.h  include  file for more info on using these routines.  Still, some of the patterns can be rather
       pretty.  If you have a color workstation, something like ppmpat -squig 300 300 | pnmquant 128 should generate a
       nice background.

       Some of these patterns have large numbers of colors, so if you want a simpler pattern, use pnmquant on the out-
       put.


OPTIONS
       The options specify various pattern types:



       -gingham2
              A gingham check pattern.  Can be tiled.


       -gingham3
              A slightly more complicated gingham.  Can be tiled.


       -madras
              A madras plaid.  Can be tiled.


       -tartan
              A tartan plaid.  Can be tiled.


       -poles Color gradients centered on randomly-placed poles.


       -squig Squiggley tubular pattern.  Can be tiled.


       -camo  Camouflage pattern.


       -anticamo
              Anti-camouflage pattern - like -camo, but ultra-bright colors.

       Some of the patterns are from 'Designer's Guide to Color 3' by Jeanne Allen.
