       sxpm [-d displayname] [-g geometry] [-hints] [-icon filename] [-plaid |
       filename  |  -]  [-o  filename  |  -o -] [-pcmap] [-closecolors] [-nod]

       pixel] [-cp color pixel] [-rgb filename] [-v]


       The  sxpm program can be used to view any XPM (version 1, 2, or 3) file
       and/or to convert a file from XPM1 or 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. Pressing the key Q in the window will quit the program.


       -d display
               Specifies the display to connect to.

       -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  specified  sxpm  reads  from  standard

       -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 visual.

       -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

       -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.
