   pampick - pick images out of a multi-image Netpbm image stream


   pampick image_sequence_number ...

   Minimum unique abbreviation of option is acceptable.  You  may
use double
   hyphens  instead  of  single hyphen to denote options. You may
use white space
   in place of the equals sign to separate an  option  name  from
its value.


   This program is part of Netpbm.

   pampick  reads  a  PNM  or PAM image stream as input. It picks
certain images
   from the stream and copies them to a new image stream on Stan-
dard Output.

   You  identify the images to pick by sequence number within the
stream. Each
   image_sequence_number is a decimal sequence number, with  zero
meaning the
   first image.

   The arguments must be in increasing order, without duplicates.
The results
   are undefined if they are not. (There are a number of enhance-
ments that
   might  be  made  in  future  releases that would make whatever
pampick does today
   when you break this rule change). pampick outputs  the  images
in the same
   order  as they appear in the input. If you specify no sequence
   pampick outputs nothing. If you specify a sequence number that
is beyond
   what  is  in the input, pampick fails with an error message to
that effect.

   pampick always reads the entire input stream. (This is helpful
when the
   input  stream is a pipe and whatever is feeding the pipe would
be upset if it
   filled up or broke).

   To see how many images, and what kind, are in  a  stream,  use

   To   extract   all  the images in a stream into separate named
files, use


   pamfile, pamsplit, pnm, pam, cat man page


   pampick was new in Netpbm 10.31 (December 2005);
