hmm... I was only trying to make it the eyas way. The way I described
I used with mulinux and it worked but I see if I wont to put it out
for others than I have some kind of responsibility.
It needs to be a precompiled packages (thy needs PERL to compile and I
don't have PERL on my BL3) and netpbm is not part of SW as fare as I
can see. so I don't know where to get it.
basically I like BL3 the way it is and I wont to change as little as possible.
Also I am mostly satistfied with the netpbm packages that is in from
Sindi. The netpbm packages is organized in 3 parts. converters,
editors, and analyzers, with the converters I am satestfyed, analyzers
I need a tool for measuring i don't know if it is there, but then
there are some editors that apply some alagorithems to images,
pnmconvol, there is pnmdither, pnmcolormap, pnmgamma, pnmchannal
(maybe the names is wrong I am not checking now just remembering)
where this editors unable to compile ore run under lib5 ore where thy
left out fore saving space?

Yes but I don't wont to upgrade my whole system if I can avoid that I
just wont the editors of the netpbm packages.
