NAME

       pnmtoxwd - convert a PNM into an X11 window dump



SYNOPSIS

       pnmtoxwd

       [-pseudodepth n]

       [-directcolor]

       [pnmfile]



DESCRIPTION

       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pnmtoxwd  reads a PNM image as input and produces an X11 window dump as
       output.  You can display this output with xwud.

       Normally, pnmtoxwd produces a StaticGray dump  file  for  PBM  and  PGM
       files.   For  PPM, it writes a PseudoColor dump file if there are up to
       256 colors in the input, and a DirectColor dump  file  otherwise.   You
       can  use  the -directcolor option to force a DirectColor dump.  And you
       can use -pseudodepth to change the depth of PseudoColor dumps from  the
       default of 8 bits / 256 colors.

       In  an  X11  window  dump  file, various integers can be represented in
       either big endian (most significant byte first) or little endian  code.
       Those generated by pnmtoxwd are always big endian.
