Description:This writes an array of integers as grey-level image
using the PGM (PortableGrayMap) format.
On Unix systems, man 5 pgm should give you a description of
the PGM image format.

starting at the upper left corner and continuing
rowwise (normal english reading order).

This writes an image named FancyImage.pgm with the gray values
from the array, having 16 columns and 24 rows.
