Information about PBM file format

Name PBM
Full name Portable Bit Map
File extension .pbm
MIME type image/x-portable-bitmap
Developed by Jef Poskanzer
Type of format
Description The PBM format is the lowest common denominator monochrome file format. It serves as the common language of a large family of bitmap image conversion filters. Because the format pays no heed to efficiency, it is simple and general enough to easily develop programs to convert to and from just about any other graphics format or manipulate the image. This is not a format that one would normally use to store a file or transmit it to someone - it's too expensive and not expressive enough for that. It's just an intermediary format. In its purest use, it lives only in a pipe between two other programs.
