pbmtomacp - convert a portable bitmap into a MacPaint file
Reads a portable bitmap as input.
If no input-file is given, standard input is assumed.
Produces a MacPaint file as output.
The generated file is only the data fork of a picture.
You will need a program such as
to generate a Macbinary or a BinHex file that contains the necessary
information to identify the file as a PNTG file to MacOS.
Left, right, bottom & top let you define a square into the pbm file,
that must be converted.
Default is the whole file.
If the file is too large for a MacPaint-file, the bitmap is cut to fit
from ( left, top ).
The source code contains comments in a language other than English.
