Specification:

XPM is a defacto standard for storing monochome, gray-scale, and color
pixmap data to disk under the X Window system. XPM files, like XBM files,
are C source code files, with each pixmap being defined as a static char
array.

The XPM format was created through the work of the KOALA Project at Groupe
Bull Research. Questions about XPM may be directed to:
