1994.08.26 18:00 "ppm2tiff doesn't ignored comments in the tiff-file", by Uwe Bonnes

A header in a ppm-file like:

P6
# Ghostscript 8 bit mapped color image dump
510 300
255

causes ppm2tiff to abort with:

(file): Not a PPM file.

You have to erase the comment by hand. >From the definition of the ppm-file, the comment is legal.
