Tk::Pixmap - Create color images from XPM files.
is a popular X Window image file format for storing color icons.
image type can be used to create color images using XPM
Pixmaps support the following options:
- -data => string
Specifies the contents of the source pixmap as a string. The string
must adhere to the XPM file format (e.g., as generated by the
pixmap(1) program). If both the -data and -file
options are specified, the -data option takes precedence.
Please note that the XPM file parsing code in the xpm library is
somewhat fragile. The first line of the string must be "/* XPM
*/" or otherwise a segmatation fault will be caused.
- -file => name
name gives the name of a file whose contents define the source
pixmap. The file must adhere to the XPM file format (e.g., as
generated by the pixmap(1) program).
When a pixmap image is created, Tk also creates a new object.
This object supports the configure
described in Tk::options which can be used to enquire and
modify the options described above.
