       [-imagename Name]

DESCRIPTION

       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pnmtosgi  reads  a PNM image as input and produces an SGI image file as
       output.  The SGI image will be 2-dimensional (1 channel)  for  PBM  and
       PGM input, and 3-dimensional (3 channels) for PPM.



OPTIONS

       -verbatim
              Write an uncompressed file.

       -rle (default)
              Write a compressed (run length encoded) file.

       -imagename name
              Write  the string ’name’ into the imagename field of the header.
              The name string is limited to 79  characters.   If  no  name  is
              given, pnmtosgi writes ’no name’ into this field.
