ilbmtoppm - convert an ILBM file into a PPM image
ilbmtoppm [-verbose] [-ignore<chunkID>] [-isham|-isehb] [-adjustcolors]
This program is part of Netpbm(1).
ilbmtoppm reads an IFF ILBM file as input and produces a PPM image as
output. ilbmtoppm can handle the following ILBM types:
· Normal ILBMs with 1-16 planes.
· Amiga Extra_Halfbrite (EHB)
· Amiga HAM with 3-16 planes.
· 24 bit.
· Multiplatte (normal or HAM) pictures.
· Color map (BMHD + CMAP chunk only, nPlanes = 0).
· Unofficial direct color. 1-16 planes for each color component.
ilbmtoppm uses these ILBM chunks: BMHD, CMAP, CAMG (only HAM & EHB
flags used), PCHG, BODY unofficial DCOL chunk to identify direct color
ILBM. It ignores these chunks: GRAB, DEST, SPRT, CRNG, CCRT, CLUT,
DPPV, DRNG, EPSF. It ignores, but displays in verbose mode, these:
NAME, AUTH, (c), ANNO, DPI. It skips chunks whose type it doesn’t rec-
Give some information about the ILBM file.
Skip a chunk. chunkID is the 4-letter IFF chunk identifier of
the chunk to be skipped.

Treat the input file as a HAM or Extra_Halfbrite picture, even
if these flags are not set in the CAMG chunk (or if there is no
If all colors in the CMAP have a value of less then 16, ilbm-
toppm assumes a 4-bit colormap and gives a warning. With this
option the colormap is scaled to 8 bits.
