What is PNM file format?

PNM if an graphics format similiar to GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF and others. Aview uses it because of its simplicity. Many free or shareware conversion tools from other graphics format exist (ImageMagick, NetPBM for UNIX, alchemy for DOS and others.) So you should use aview to browse images in many graphics format. UNIX version has script that does conversion automatically (using eighter NetPBM (preffered way) or ImageMagic conversion program. FIFO is used to do not waste your disc space so conversion is fully transparent. Under DOS and other operating systems you probably need to do it yourself.
