ppmtopict - convert a portable pixmap into a Macintosh PICT file
Reads a portable pixmap as input. Produces a Macintosh PICT
file as output.
The generated file is only the data fork of a picture. You
will need a program such as mcvert to generate a
Macbinary or a !BinHex? file that contains the necessary
information to identify the file as a PICT file to
Even though PICT supports 2 and 4 bits per pixel,
ppmtopict always generates an 8 bits per pixel
The picture size field is only correct if the output is to a
file since writing into this field requires seeking
backwards on a file. However the PICT documentation seems to
suggest that this field is not critical anyway since it is
only the lower 16 bits of the picture size.
