pcxtoppm - convert a PCX file into a portable pixmap
Reads a PCX file as input.
Produces a portable pixmap as output.
Supported PCX types are:
- Colormapped files with 2-16 colors.
"Packed pixel" format (1, 2 or 4 bits/pixel, 1 plane) or bitplane format (1
bit/pixel, 1-4 planes). The program checks the colormap and uses an internal
one if the provided colormap is completely black.
- Colormapped files with 256 colors
8 bits/pixel, 1 plane, colormap at the end of the file.
- 24bit truecolor files
24bit RGB: 8 bits/pixel, 3 planes.
- 32bit truecolor files
24bit RGB + 8bit intensity: 8 bits/pixel, 4 planes.
Enforce the use of the internal colormap for files with 16 colors or less.
