SXPM(1) MachTen Programmer’s Manual SXPM(1)

sxpm - Show an XPM (X PixMap) file and/or convert XPM 1 or
2 files to XPM 3.

sxpm [-d displayname] [-g geometry] [-hints] [-icon
filename] [-plaid | filename | -] [-o filename | -o -]
[-pcmap] [-closecolors] [-nod] [-nom] [-mono | -grey4 |
-grey | -color] [-sc symbol color] [-sp symbol pixel] [-cp
color pixel] [-rgb filename] [-v]

The sxpm program can be used to view any XPM (version 2 or
3) file and/or to convert a file from XPM1 and XPM2 to XPM
version 3. If sxpm is run with any dummy option specified,
the usage is displayed. If no geometry is specified, the
show window will have the size of the read pixmap. Press-
ing the key Q in the window will quit the program.

-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.

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

Read from the file filename and from standard
input if filename is ’-’. If no input is speci-
fied sxpm reads from standard input.

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

-mono Use the colors specified for a monochrome visual.

-grey4 Use the colors specified for a 4 color greyscale

-grey Use the colors specified for a greyscale visual.

-color Use the colors specified for a color visual.

-pcmap Use a private colormap.

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

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

-nom Do not use the clipmask if there is any.

-sc symbol colorname
Override default color to symbol to colorname.

-sp symbol pixelvalue
Override default color to symbol to pixelvalue.

-cp colorname pixelvalue
Override default color to colorname to pixelvalue.

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

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

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.
