       ppmtopict - convert a portable pixmap into a Macintosh PICT file

       ppmtopict [ppmfile]

       Reads  a	 portable  pixmap as input.  Produces a Macintosh PICT file as

       The generated 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 PICT  file
       to MacOS.

       Even though PICT supports 2 and 4 bits per pixel, ppmtopict always gen‐
       erates an 8 bits per pixel file.

       The picture size field is only correct if the output is to a file since
       writing	into this field requires seeking backwards on a file.  However
       the PICT documentation seems to suggest that this field is not critical
       anyway since it is only the lower 16 bits of the picture size.
