       img-xbm - Img, X Windows Bitmap Format (xbm)


       package require Tk

       package require img::xbm  ?1.4?

       image create photo ?name? ?options?



       The  package  img::xbm is a sub-package of Img. It can be loaded as a part of the complete
       Img support, via package require Img, or on its own, via package require img::xbm.

       Like all packages of Img it does not provide new commands, but  extends  the  existing  Tk
       command  image  so that it supports files containing raster images in the X Windows Bitmap
       Format (xbm). More specifically img::xbm extends Tk's photo image type.

       The name of the new format handler is xbm.   This  handler  does  not  provide  additional
       configuration options.

       All of the above means that in a call like

       image create photo ?name? ?options?

       [1]    Image data in xbm format (options -data and -file) is detected automatically.

       [2]    The format name xbm is recognized by the option -format.
