Mac-pix reads an Apple MacIntosh MacPaint bitmap file and generates a pix(5) or bw(5) raster image file. While the MacPaint file is 720x576 pixels, it is possible to specify an alternate size input file with the -s -w and -n flags; the usefulness of this is unknown. By default, the output pix(5) file is 1024x1024 pixels, with the input image located in the lower left corner of the output (nearest the origin). The default color for an "on" pixel is white (R=G=B=255); alternatively, the -C r/g/b flag can be used to specify intensities for each of the colors, in the range of [0..255]. The -b flag will output a bw(5) black and white file instead. By specifying the -c flag, the input image is centered in the middle of the output image. By specifying the -l flag, the default output size is changed to 512x512. Alternatively, the -S flag can be used to specify the square output size, or -W and -N flags can be used to specify the output width and height. If no input file is specified, standard input is read instead.
Especially pleasing displays of MacPaint documents can be made by using pixmerge(1) to combine them with the output of pixbackgnd(1): pixbackgnd -h 160 200 > bg.pix mac-pix -c file.mac | pixmerge - bg.pix | pix-fb
brlcad(1), pixmerge(1), pix(5), bw(5).
