targatorle - Convert Truevision TARGA images to RLE format.
outfile.rle ] [
Targatorle converts a file from Truevisions TARGA format into RLE format.
If no input file is specified, the data is
read from stdin.
Targatorle recognizes (but cannot necessarily process) all of the image subtypes
defined by the 1989 TARGA 2.0 specification:
0 - Header Only, No Image Data
1 - Uncompressed, Color-mapped Image
2 - Uncompressed, True-color Image
3 - Uncompressed, B/W (gray scale) Image
9 - Run-length encoded, Color-mapped Image
10 - Run-length encoded, True-color Image
11 - Run-length encoded, B/W Image
Targatorle should correctly process images in formats 0, 2, 3, 10, and 11.
No support is currently available for color mapped images.
Allow the program to write TARGA header information to
nchannels is 3 or 4.
If input is a color image, copy only
nchannels of the TARGA file; this allows the alpha channel to be stripped. By default,
the alpha channel will be copied if present.
outfile as output instead of
The TARGA image descriptor byte is ignored; therefore, the image origin
is assumed to be that of RLE(5) (bottom left).
None of the color-mapped TARGA formats (types 1 and 9) are
Finally, no attempt has been made to support extensions to the
TARGA File Format introduced by Truevision in 1989 (new support
for time stamps, comments, user-defined data fields, etc.).
