I am not familiar with the pgmor format. Do you mean PGM format?

You need the netpbm package for this (you can find this compiled for a number of architectures at http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/). Once you have this installed, you can use code like this:

#include "pgm.h"

int
main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    int format;
    int rows, cols;
    gray maxval;
    int row;
    gray* grayrow;
    FILE * input;

    pgm_init(&argc, argv);

    if (argc != 2)
        pm_error("Usage:\n%s <pgm file>\n\n", argv[0]);

    input = fopen(argv[1], "r");
    if (input == NULL)
    {
        pm_error("Cannot open file %s\n", argv[1]);
        exit(-1);
    }

    pgm_readpgminit(input, &cols, &rows, &maxval, &format);
    grayrow = pgm_allocrow(cols);
    for (row = 0; row < rows; row++)
    {
        pgm_readpgmrow(input, grayrow, cols, maxval, format);
        // do something with the data in grayrow, the next read operation will overwrite this again.
    }
    pgm_freerow(grayrow);
    pm_close(input);

    exit(0);
}

You can also implement the read function yourself by implementing this format spec:

Can you please explain the "C" grade. The provided sample program did either answer your question, or it did not. In the latter case, you should have asked for more information. If the sample did answer your question I don't understand your grading.
Please make yourself familiar with the EE grading guidelines at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/help.jsp#hi73
I'll request a review of this grade.
