xvtoppm - convert from xv's .xvpics format to ppm

xvtoppm .xvpics/file

xvtoppm is a simple-minded script that converts xv's ``Visual Schnauzer'' files into the ppm format. This makes it possible to use all those files to create a contact sheet without scaling down the original images again. Check out icontact's -Z option which turns off scaling of the input files. Also check out the -M option which will allow you to, say, double the size of each image.

xv(1), icontact(1), ppm(1)

xvtoppm doesn't take into account all the information on the first line of the input files. If the format ever changes from the ``P7 332'' version currently in use, this program will fail.
