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. (Note: OOMMF support for BMP
requires Tk 8.0
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.
- infile ...
- List of input files to process.
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
