  Read the documentation (any of it - it all points to somewhere on the 
web), go to where it points, search around for a list of commands, then 
try stringing them together.  So maybe pnmtoxxx | xxxtoyyy | yyytopbm
[ xxx and yyy are just examples of unknown commands, unless you can find 
anything listing the required sequence of commands, you have to read up 
on what commands exist, and what they do.
