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?

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


The format name xbm is recognized by the option -format.
