I'd second Waldek's suggestion. Especially since your array of
strings is already quite close to the PNM format, and you don't need
any library to create the file (simple WriteLn will do :-).

A real graphics library, which will write the image to the screen
(or a virtual context) and read it back to write it to a file is
kind of overkill if you really just want to create the file.
