NAME
       winicontoppm - convert a Windows .ico image into 1 or more PPM images


SYNOPSIS
       winicontoppm [-writeands] [-allicons|-bestqual] [-multippm] [-verbose] [iconfile] [ppmdestfile]


DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       winicontoppm reads a Microsoft Windows .ico file and converts it to one or more PPMs.

       A Windows icon contains one or more images, at different resolutions and color depths.  Each image has an 'and'
       mask, which contains transparancy data.

       By default, the output goes to Standard Output.  If you specify ppmdestfile, output goes into one or more files
       named  as  follows.   If it's just one file (i.e. you specify the -multippm option or don't specify -allicons),
       the file name is ppmdestfile.ppm.  If it's multiple files, their file  names  are  ppmdestfile_1.ppm,  ppmdest-
       file_2.ppm, etc.

        When  you  specify  the  -writeands  option, the file names above are modified to include the string xor as in
       ppmdestfile_xor.ppm or ppmdestfile_xor_1.ppm.

       winicontoppm can convert .ico images with 1, 4, 8, 24, or 32 bits per pixel.  Before Netpbm 10.15 (April 2003),
       it could not handle 24 and 32.


OPTIONS
       -writeands
              For each icon written, also write the 'and' (transparancy) mask as a separate PBM file.  It's name is of
              the form ppmdestfile_and.pbm or ppmdestfile_and_1.pbm.


       -allicons
              Extract all images from the .ico file.


       -bestqual
              Extract only the best quality (largest, then highest bpp) image from the .ico file.


       -multippm
              Write all PPMs to a single file.
