orictoppm - convert an Oric video RAM dump into a portable pixmap


orictoppm reads one or more files supposed to contain dumps of an Oric video RAM and, for each input file, writes a file containing the corresponding 240×200 or 240×224 image, in packed ppm format.

You can view an HTML conversion of the man page there.


All Unix-like platforms, such as Linux. In fact just about any platform, as long as unistd.h and getopt() are present. For example, DOS/Windows with DJGPP or Cygwin should work.
