       img-xpm - Img, X Windows Pixmap Format (xpm)


       package require Tk

       package require img::xpm  ?1.3?

       image create photo ?name? ?options?


       The  package  img::xpm 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::xpm.

       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 Pixmap
       Format (xpm). More specifically img::xpm extends Tk's photo image type.

       The name of the new format handler is xpm.   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 xpm format (options -data and -file) is detected automatically.

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