NAME

pgmtopbm - convert a PGM image to PBM

 

SYNOPSIS

pgmtopbm

[-floyd | -fs | -threshold | -hilbert | -dither8 | -d8 | -cluster3 | -c3 | -cluster4 | -c4 | -cluster8 | -c8]

[-value val]

[-clump size]

[pgmfile]

 

DESCRIPTION

This program is part of Netpbm(1).

This program is obsolete since Netpbm 10.23 (July 2004). Use pamditherbw(1)todowhatthisprogram used to do.

pgmtopbm never was the simple converter it appeared to be. It was a dithering program. Unfortunately, it didn't do the dithering properly because it treated the PGM input samples as if they were directly proportional to light intensity, but they are actually gamma-adjusted.

pamditherbw is backward compatible with pgmtopbm except that it does the correct gamma adjustments.
