 NAME
      sxpm - Show an XPM (X PixMap) file and/or convert XPM2  files  to  XPM
      version 3.

 SYNOPSIS
      sxpm [-d displayname]  [-g  geometry]  [-hints]  [-icon  filename]  [-s
      symbol  color_name] [-p symbol pixel_value] [-plaid | filename | -] [-o
      filename | -o -] [-nod] [-rgb filename] [-c] [-v]

 DESCRIPTION
      The sxpm program can be used to view any XPM (version  2  or  3)  file
      and/or  to  convert  a file from XPM2 to XPM version 3. If sxpm is run
      without any option specified, the usage is displayed. If  no  geometry
      is  specified,  the show window will have the size of the read pixmap.
      Pressing the key Q in the window will quit the program.

 OPTIONS
      -d display
              Specifies the display to connect to.

      -g geom Window geometry (default is pixmap's size).

      -hints  Set ResizeInc for window.

      -icon filename
              Set icon to pixmap created from the file filename.

      -s symbol colorname
              Overwrite default color to symbol to colorname.

      -p symbol pixelvalue
              Overwrite default color to symbol to pixelvalue.

      -closecolors
              Try to use "close colors" before reverting to other visuals.

      -plaid  Show the plaid pixmap which is stored as data.

      filename
              Read from  the  file  filename  and  from  standard  input  if
              filename  is  '-'.   If  no input is specified sxpm reads from
              standard input.

      -o filename
              Write to the file filename (overwrite if  it  already  exists)
              and to standard output if filename is '-'.

      -nod    Do not display the pixmap in a window.  (Useful when using  as
              converter)

      -rgb filename
              Search color names in the file filename  and  write  them  out
              instead of the rgb values.

      -c      To use a private colormap.

      -v      Verbose - to print out extensions (stderr).



 KNOWN BUGS
      When converting a file from XPM2 to XPM version 3, if  several  pixels
      (symbols) get the same color only one will be in the file written out.
      Some window managers may not accept a pixmap which is not a bitmap  as
      icon  because this does not respect ICCCM, many of the well known ones
      will accept it though.
