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


Reads three files, containing the YUV components, as input. These files are basename.Y, basename.U, and basename.V. Produces a portable pixmap on stdout.

Since the YUV files are raw files, the dimensions width and height must be specified on the command line.



Assumes that the YUV triplets are scaled into the smaller range of the CCIR 601 (MPEG) standard. Else, the JFIF (JPEG) standard is assumed.
