The any2ppm program converts bitmap files of various formats into
the Portable Pixmap (PPM) P3 (text) format. Supported input formats are
PPM, BMP, and GIF. Additional formats may be available if the Tcl/Tk Img
package is installed on your system. (Note: OOMMF support for BMP
requires Tk 8.0 or later.)
Bitmap File Format Conversion:
The any2ppm launch command is:
tclsh oommf.tcl any2ppm [standard options] [-noinfo] \
[-o outfile] [infile ...]
- Suppress writing of progress information to stderr.
- -o outfile
- Write output to outname; use ``-'' to pipe output to
stdout. The default is to create a new file by stripping the
extension, if any, off of each input filename, and appending .ppm.
If the generated filename already exists, a ``-000'' or ``-001''
... suffix is appended. If the input is coming from stdin, i.e.,
there is no input filename, then the default output is to stdout.
Note that if outname is specified, then all output will go
to this one file; in this case it is unlikely that one wants to
specify more than one input file.
- infile ...
- List of input files to process. If none, or if an infile is the empty
string, then read from stdin.
Tk Requirement: any2ppm uses the
Tk image command in its processing. This requires that Tk be
properly initialized, which in particular means that a valid display
must be available. This is not a problem on Windows, where a desktop
is always present, but on Unix this means that an X server must be
virtual framebuffer can be used if desired. (Xvfb is an X server
distributed with X11R6 that requires no display hardware or physical
