 NAME
      xstdcmap - X standard colormap utility

 SYNOPSIS
      xstdcmap [-all] [-best] [-blue] [-default] [-delete map] [-display
      display] [-gray] [-green] [-help] [-red] [-verbose]

 DESCRIPTION
      The xstdcmap utility can be used to selectively define standard
      colormap properties.  It is intended to be run from a user's X startup
      script to create standard colormap definitions in order to facilitate
      sharing of scarce colormap resources among clients.  Where at all
      possible, colormaps are created with read-only allocations.

 OPTIONS
      The following options may be used with xstdcmap:

      -all    This option indicates that all six standard colormap
              properties should be defined on each screen of the display.
              Not all screens will support visuals under which all six
              standard colormap properties are meaningful.  xstdcmap will
              determine the best allocations and visuals for the colormap
              properties of a screen. Any previously existing standard
              colormap properties will be replaced.

      -best   This option indicates that the RGB_BEST_MAP should be defined.

      -blue   This option indicates that the RGB_BLUE_MAP should be defined.

      -default
              This option indicates that the RGB_DEFAULT_MAP should be
              defined.

      -delete map
              This option specifies that a standard colormap property should
              be removed.  mapP may be one of: default, best, red, green,
              blue, or gray.

      -display display
              This option specifies the host and display to use; see X(1).

      -gray   This option indicates that the RGB_GRAY_MAP should be defined.

      -green  This option indicates that the RGB_GREEN_MAP should be
              defined.

      -help   This option indicates that a brief description of the command
              line arguments should be printed on the standard error.  This
              will be done whenever an unhandled argument is given to
              xstdcmap.

      -red    This option indicates that the RGB_RED_MAP should be defined.

      -verbose
              This option indicates that xstdcmap should print logging
              information as it parses its input and defines the standard
              colormap properties.

 ENVIRONMENT
      DISPLAY to get default host and display number.
