       img-ico - Img, Windows Icon Format (ico)


       package require Tk

       package require img::ico  ?1.3?

       image create photo ?name? ?options?


       The  package  img::ico 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::ico.

       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 Windows Icon
       Format (ico). More specifically img::ico extends Tk's photo image type.

       The name of the  new  format  handler  is  ico.   This  handler  provides  new  additional
       configuration options. See section ICO OPTIONS for more detailed explanations.

       All of the above means that in a call like

       image create photo ?name? ?options?

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

       [2]    The format name ico is recognized by the option -format.  In addition the value for
              the option is treated as list and may contain any of the special options listed  in
              section ICO OPTIONS.

              stdout. Default is false.

       -index n
              This option is supported for reading only.
