no example yet ...

... Feel free to add your own example above to help other Linux-lovers !


Reads a portable bitmap file as input. Reads from stdin if input file is omitted. Produces a MicroDesign 2 area file (.MDA) as output.



Halve the height of the output file, to compensate for the aspect ratio used in MicroDesign files.


Invert the colours used.


End of options (use this if the filename starts with "-")


There’s no way to produce files in MicroDesign 3 format. MD3 itself and mdatopbm(1) can read files in either format.
