What is it
XPM (X PixMap) is a format for storing/retrieving X pixmaps to/from files.

This new version provides a C includable format, defaults for different types of display: monochrome/color/grayscale, hotspot coordinates and symbol names for colors for overriding default colors when creating the pixmap. It provides a mechanism for storing information while reading a file which is re-used while writing. This way comments, default colors and symbol names aren't lost. It also handles "transparent pixels" by returning a shape mask in addition to the created pixmap.

See the XPM Manual for details.
