Turaco CL

Turaco CL is a tool for extracting PNM image files out of arcade game ROMs. It also can regenerate arcade game ROMs from PNM image files. Once the image files have been extracted, you can edit them in your favorite paint program. They can then be encoded back into game ROMs to be played in an emulator or real arcade hardware.
