NAME
       xpmtoppm - convert an X11 pixmap to a PPM image


SYNOPSIS
       xpmtoppm

       [--alphaout={alpha-filename,-}] [-verbose]

       [xpmfile]


DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       xpbtoppm reads an X11 pixmap (XPM version 1 or 3) as input and produces a PPM image as output.


OPTIONS
       --alphaout=alpha-filename
              xpmtoppm  creates a PBM file containing the transparency mask for the image.  If the input image doesn't
              contain transparency information, the alpha-filename file contains all white (opaque) alpha values.   If
              you  don't  specify  --alphaout,  xpmtoppm  does  not generate an alpha file, and if the input image has
              transparency information, xpmtoppm simply discards it.

              If you specify - as the filename, xpmtoppm writes the alpha output to Standard Output and  discards  the
              image.

              See pamcomp(1)foronewaytouse the alpha output file.

              xpmtoppm  can't  handle a line longer than 8K characters in the the XPM input.  If an input line exceeds
              this limit, xpmtoppm quits with an error message to that effect.  Before Netpbm  10.30  (October  2005),
              the limit was 2K.


       --verbose
              xpmtoppm prints information about its processing on Standard Error.




LIMITATIONS
       The  recogized  XPM  version  3  features are limited.  Comments can only be single lines and there must be for
       every pixel a default colorname for a color type visual.
