xstdcmap - X standard colormap utility
[-all] [-best] [-blue] [-default] [-delete map
] [-display display
[-gray] [-green] [-help] [-red] [-verbose] [-version]
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.
The following options may be used with xstdcmap:
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.
This option indicates that the RGB_BEST_MAP should be defined.
This option indicates that the RGB_BLUE_MAP should be defined.
This option indicates that the RGB_DEFAULT_MAP should be defined.
- -delete map
This option specifies that a specific standard colormap property, or
all such properties, should be removed.
map may be one of: default, best, red, green, blue, gray, or all.
- -display display

This option indicates that the RGB_GRAY_MAP should be defined.
This option indicates that the RGB_GREEN_MAP should be defined.

print logging information as it parses its input and defines the
standard colormap properties.
This option indicates that xstdcmap should print its version and exit.
to get default host and display number.
