SYNOPSIS

rletopaint [ -l ] [ -r ] [ -g [ gamma ] ] [ -o outfile.paint ] [ infile ]

DESCRIPTION

Rletopaint converts a file from RLE(5) format to MacPaint format. The program uses dithering to convert from a full 24 bit color image to a bitmapped image. If the RLE file is larger than a MacPaint image (576×720) it is cropped to fit.

Because MacPaint files have their coordinate origin in the upper left instead of the lower left, the RLE file should be piped through rleflip(1) -v before rletopaint.

The resulting file can be downloaded to a Macintosh in binary mode, and should be given a type of PNTG and a creator of MPNT, so it will be recognized as a MacPaint file.

OPTIONS

-l Use a linear map in the conversion from 24 bits to bitmapped output.
-g [ gamma ]
  Use a gamma map of gamma (gamma is 2.0 if not specified).
-r Invert the sense of the output pixels (white on black instead of black on white). For normal images, you probably want this flag.

SEE ALSO
