You didn't say what format the C library uses: perhaps it's one of the
many for which conversion programs already exist. If you are running on
a *nix system (Unix, Linux, BSD, Solaris ...) the portable bitmap
package may already have a conversion program. And then there's always
ImageMagick, which also can convert to and from innumerable image
