Converting RPBM to XPM

The RPBM format is part of a group of portable bitmap formats known as Netpbm, together with PBM, PGM and PPM. All formats were designed by Jef Poskanzer with the aim of improving the transferability of bitmap files between different computers and applications. RPBM files contain monochrome images and they are less common than PBMs, so opening them with currently available image viewers might pose some difficulties.

The XPM (X PixMap) format serves primarily at creating icon or cursor pixmaps in the X Windows System. It was created in 1989 using the XBM syntax which is shaped in the C programming language. XPMs store black-and-white, gray-scale or color images and can be easily edited with any text editor.

So, how to change RPBM into XPM?
