This program displays an
file on an Apollo workstations running the Display Manager.
It uses a dithering technique to take a

borrow mode, the 24 bit mode of the Apollo hardware is used (if its
available). On bitmap displays,
getap converts the image to black and white and uses bitmap dithering.
getap to use "borrow mode" instead of an apollo window, if the hardware supports
it. The only hardware that supports this are the DN550, DN560 and the
DN660. The bottom portion of the image is chopped off on workstations without

This loads a color map with the specified gamma.
Loads a linear color map.

On black and white displays, this flips the orientation of black and white.
