NAME

ppmtomap - extract all colors from a portable pixmap

SYNOPSIS

ppmtomap [-sort] [-square] [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION

Reads a portable pixmap as input. Produces a portable pixmap as output, representing a color map of the input file. All N different colors found are put in an Nx1 portable pixmap. This color map file can be used as a mapfile for ppmquant or ppmtogif.

OPTIONS

-sort

Produces a portable pixmap with the colors in some sorted order.

-square

Produces a (more or less) square output file, instead of putting all colors on the top row.

All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.

WARNING

If you want to use the output file as a mapfile for ppmtogif, you first have to do a ppmquant 256, since ppmtomap is not limited to 256 colors (but to 65536).
