NAME

       pamtouil - convert a PNM or PNM/alpha image into a Motif UIL icon file



SYNOPSIS

       pamtouil [-name=uilname] [pamfile]

       You  may  abbreviate any option to its shortest unique prefix.  You may
       use two hyphens instead of one to delimit an option.  You may  separate
       an option from its value with whitespace instead of =.



DESCRIPTION

       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pamtouil  reads  a  PNM  or PAM image as input and produces a Motif UIL
       icon file as output.  If the input is PAM, it may be either  a  regular
       grayscale  or color image or grayscale+alpha or color+alpha.  Where the
       alpha channel is present, pamtouil renders pixels that  are  more  than
       half transparent as transparent in the output.

       In  the  UIL’s  colormap,  pamtouil  uses  the color names from the RGB
       database -- the same one ppmmake(1) uses.  Where a color in  the  input
       does  not  exactly  match  one of the colors named in the RGB database,
       pamtouil uses the closest color named in the RGB database.



OPTIONS

       -name       Allows you to specify the prefix string which is printed in
              the
                   resulting  UIL  output.   If not specified, will default to
              the filename
                   (without extension) of the ppmfile argument.  If  -name  is
              not
                   specified  and  no ppmfile is specified (i.e. piped input),
              the
                   prefix string will default to the string ’noname’.

HISTORY

       Before May 2002, pamtouil was called ppmtouil and had no way to specify
       transparency.
