NAME

       xstdcmap - X standard colormap utility

SYNOPSIS

       xstdcmap  [-all]  [-best]  [-blue]  [-default]  [-delete map] [-display
       display] [-gray] [-green] [-help] [-red] [-verbose]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       The following options may be used with xstdcmap:

       -all    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.

       -best   This option indicates that the RGB_BEST_MAP should be  defined.

       -blue   This  option indicates that the RGB_BLUE_MAP should be defined.

       -default
               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 specifies the host and display to use; see X(7).

       -gray   This  option indicates that the RGB_GRAY_MAP should be defined.

       -green  This option indicates that the RGB_GREEN_MAP should be defined.

       -help   This  option  indicates that a brief description of the command
               line arguments should be printed on the standard  error.   This
               will  be  done  whenever  an  unhandled  argument  is  given to
               xstdcmap.

       -red    This option indicates that the RGB_RED_MAP should be defined.

       -verbose
               This  option  indicates  that  xstdcmap  should  print  logging
               information  as  it  parses  its input and defines the standard
               colormap properties.

ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY to get default host and display number.
