       xwdtopnm - convert a X11 or X10 window dump file into a portable anymap


       xwdtopnm [xwdfile]


       Reads a X11 or X10 window dump file  as  input.   Produces  a  portable
       anymap  as  output.   The  type of the output file depends on the input
       file - if it’s black & white, a pbm  file  is  written,  else  if  it’s
       grayscale  a  pgm  file,  else a ppm file.  The program tells you which
       type it is writing.

       Using this program, you can convert  anything  on  an  X  workstation’s
       screen  into an anymap.  Just display whatever you’re interested in, do
       an xwd, run it through xwdtopnm, and then use pnmcut to select the part
       you want.


       I  haven’t tested this tool with very many configurations, so there are
       probably bugs.  Please let me know if you find any.
