Format for storing/retrieving X pixmaps

XPixMap (XPM) consists of an ASCII image format and a C library. The format defines how to store color images (X Pixmap), and the library provides a set of functions to store and retrieve images to and from XPM format data, being either files, buffers (files in memory), or data (included files). 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.
