XPixMap 3.4k

XPixMap consists of an ASCII image format and a C library.
XPixMap consists of an ASCII image format and a C library. The format defines how to store color images (X Pixmap) in a portable and powerful way.

While XPM is not an X Consortium standard, it is already a de facto standard. It is used in many applications both commercial and non-commercial. Several vendors distribute the XPM library, as contributed software, on the platforms they sell. Moreover, the Common Desktop Environment specifies that icons must be stored either in XBM or XPM format. Finally, Motif 2.0 from OSF includes the XPM library, allowing XPM to be used in addition to XBM.

XPM has nothing to do with dates in any form and is not influenced by them. The XPM library is therefore Y2K compliant.

To obtain the XPM library, first uncompress and untar the compressed tar file in an appropriate directory. Then you can either compile XPM via "imake" or in a stand-alone way.
