pnmtorast - convert a PPM into a Sun rasterfile

pnmtorast [-standard|-rle] [pnmfile]

This program is part of Netpbm(1)

pnmtorastreads a PPM image as input and produces a Sun rasterfile as output.

Color values in Sun rasterfiles are eight bits wide, so pnmtorast will automatically scale colors to have a maxval of 255. An extra pamdepth step is not necessary.

The -standard option forces the result to be in RT_STANDARD form; the -rle option, RT_BYTE_ENCODED, which is smaller but, well, less standard. The default is -rle.

All options can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.
