convert a portable bitmap into a MacPaint file
[-l left] [-r right] [-b
bottom] [-t top] [pbmfile]
portable bitmap as input. If no input-file is given,
standard input is assumed. Produces a MacPaint file as
file is only the data fork of a picture. You will need a
program such as mcvert to generate a Macbinary or a
BinHex file that contains the necessary information to
identify the file as a PNTG file to MacOS.
bottom & top let you define a square into the pbm file,
that must be converted. Default is the whole file. If the
file is too large for a MacPaint-file, the bitmap is cut to
fit from ( left, top ).
