Reads a Palm
pixmap as input, from stdin or pnmfile. Produces
either a portable pixmap as output, or writes the value of
the transparent color in the Palm pixmap to stdout.
Display various interesting
information about the input file and process.
If the Palm pixmap has a
transparent color set, the RGB value for that color will be
written to stdout as in the form #RRGGBB, where
RR, GG, and BB are two-digit
hexadecimal numbers indicating a value between 0 and 255. If
no transparent color is set in the bitmap, nothing will be
output. No additional output will be generated; no anymap
will be output.
Palm pixmaps may contain
several different renditions of the same pixmap, with
different depths. By default, palmtopnm operates on
the first rendition (rendition number 1) in the pixmap. This
switch allows you to operate on a different rendition. The
value must be between 1 and the number of renditions in the

cannot generate an alpha mask if the Palm pixmap has a

ppmcolormask with a Netpbm pipe similar to:

was originally written as Tbmptopnm.c, by Ian Goldberg. It
was heavily modified by Bill Janssen to add color,
compression, and transparency function.
