Actually you can write PGM-files (256 greyscales) with 2 lines of C:

fprintf(file, "P5\n%d %d\n255\n", xsize, ysize);  // the header is easy
fwrite(data, xsize, ysize, file);		 // rest if plain data

data has to be organized in usual order, like "english text is read"
as the man-page says. Works very well.
