Converting Between Image File Formats
The most comprehensive and flexible single program available is
imconv. It is located in: ~jungle/iris/bin/imconv for
the SGI platform and ~jungle/sun4/bin/imconv for the Sun4
platform. It recognises file type through file name extensions.
Therefore, imconv infile.rgb outfile.tif will convert an an SGI
RGB file to a TIFF file. For more info, run: imconv
SGI also supplies a number of programs for converting to and from its
RGB file format. They are located in: /usr/sbin and are
of the form: to<format> and from<format>.
The netpbm package has been installed in the share
account for both Suns and IRISes. The various
programs that convert to and from the different pbm file formats
(pbm, pgm, pnm, ppm) can be found in
