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.

When installing this package, also install the X11R6.x package for your version of Solaris.
It contains libraries which this program is linked against and you will require it to gain
the full functionality of this software.
This software is already part of the i86pc X11R6.4 (XFree86 4.0) package, thus there will
not be a package built for i86pc machines with only a X11R6.4 package available.
See the main packages README for installation information.
