img-xpm(3) Img, X Windows Pixmap Format (xpm)


package require Tk

package require img::xpm ?1.4?

image create photo ?name? ?options?


The package img::xpm is a sub-package of Img. It can be loaded as a part of the complete Img support, via package require Img, or on its own, via package require img::xpm.

Like all packages of Img it does not provide new commands, but extends the existing Tk command image so that it supports files containing raster images in the X Windows Pixmap Format (xpm). More specifically img::xpm extends Tk's photo image type.

The name of the new format handler is xpm. This handler does not provide additional configuration options.

All of the above means that in a call like

image create photo ?name? ?options?

Image data in xpm format (options -data and -file) is detected automatically.
The format name xpm is recognized by the option -format.
