Converting CPI to SGI

The CPI extension is attached to vector files created using Calamus, a piece of desktop publishing software released in the late 1980s. Calamus was designed for the Atari ST, which was an innovative brand of home computers at the time, and was one of the first vector handling programs to include its own proprietary vector formats, as well as support virtual objects and frames. Since its release, Calamus had several subsequent upgrades and its latest version is Calamus SL2006.

SGI (Silicon Graphics Image) is a raster image format associated with Silicon Graphics workstations. It is a bitmap file that can store black-and-white, gray-scale and color images, and may also contain color maps and alpha channels. SGI files are sometimes referred to as RGBs and can either use no image compression or RLE compression. Alternative extensions for the SGI format are BW, RGB and RGBA.
