       lispmtopgm - convert a Lisp Machine bitmap file into pgm format

       lispmtopgm [lispmfile]

       Reads  a	 Lisp Machine bitmap as input.	Produces a portable graymap as

       This is the file format written by the tv:write-bit-array-file function
       on TI Explorer and Symbolics lisp machines.

       Multi-plane  bitmaps  on	 lisp  machines are color; but the lispm image
       file format does not include a color map, so we	must  treat  it	 as  a
       graymap instead.	 This is unfortunate.

       The Lispm bitmap file format is a bit quirky;  Usually the image in the
       file has its width rounded up to the next higher multiple  of  32,  but
       not  always.   If the width is not a multiple of 32, we don't deal with
       it properly, but because of the Lispm microcode, such arrays are proba‐
       bly not image data anyway.

       Also,  the  lispm code for saving bitmaps has a bug, in that if you are
       writing a bitmap which is not mod32 across, the file may	 be  up	 to  7
       bits  too  short!   They	 round down instead of up, and we don't handle
       this bug gracefully.

       No color.
